Library ReOpening Updates


The safety of our community is at the forefront of our decision-making as we continue to respond to this current health emergency.  The Northfield Public Library serves the entire neighborhood including elderly individuals, newborns and those with underlying health issues.  Fines will be waived on all overdue materials.  Through our website,, you can connect to Overdrive to download audio books and ebooks.   There are also resources for students available to you for all of us who have students beginning home instruction.   Please check in to our website and social media feeds for further updates from the library.

Thank you all for your understanding, your empathy and your willingness to do what is best for the Northfield Community.

August 13, 6:15 Meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Otto Bruyns Public Library will be held via Zoom.  Please join by using this link:
