Northfield in the Top 40 Under 40 Spotlight
Congratulations to Glenn Robbins, Principal of the Northfield Community Middle School and Aubrey Gerhardt, Director of the Otto Bruyns Public Library of Northfield for being selected in Atlantic City Weekly's Top 40 Under 40. We are excited to see the spotlight shining on the Northfield Community and the efforts being made to best serve our residents. We hope that Robbins and Gerhardt will be able to spread the word about our schools and our library and to foster new opportunities for collaboration through networking with these other successful professionals. Good things are happening in the City of Northfield and will continue to happen in the City of Northfield as we move forward into 2014. We are excited to see our residents receiving the recognition that they deserve for their efforts.

Businesses Borrow Art to Support Library & Local Heroes
Businesses borrow canvases to display throughout Northfield.
It's not too late for businesses to choose one of these canvases to loan from the library and display in their place of business. This traveling exhibit will celebrate reading, local heroes and the library’s commitment to our community. By displaying the artwork in multiple venues throughout the neighborhood, the library is reaching into the community to remind residents of the valuable resources available to them for free. We hope that this campaign will be ongoing as the artwork circulates through the neighborhood.
The Otto Bruyns Public Library of Northfield is proud to place in the spotlight those community members, volunteers and municipal employees who are in fact neighborhood heroes. There are many ways that the word hero can be interpreted. We often associate the word with military personnel or emergency response workers who have performed great acts of valor. Certainly service men and women who are putting their lives at risk when they go to work are heroes. However, there are others who should also be recognized as heroes for their commitment and service to our community, for a quiet heroics that often goes unrewarded.
