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.

July Meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Otto Bruyns Public Library will be held via Zoom.  Please join by using this link:

2016 looking ahead
New Website, Catalog & Logo

The Otto Bruyns Public Library of Northfield is thrilled to wish you the best and brightest in the coming New Year. The shifting dynamic within the library has meant that more and more of our members are reaching us through our website, online catalog and Facebook Page. It is for this reason, we are in the process of getting a digital face-lift. At the end of February, the library will unveil a freshly designed website, new library catalog and a brand new Logo to represent the Otto Brkoha-logouyns Public Library of Northfield. The Library Catalog will be using an Open Source software called Koha and will be hosted free of charge on a State Library Server. We’re thrilled to be taking advantage of government programs to be using your tax dollars so wisely. The website will be an updated version of the open-source software currently used for the website, Joomla. The Logo will be coming from one of our talented library members, whoever can best capture the energy and essence of our dynamic services here at the library. It’s going to be a great year. We’ll be maintaining the hometown library you love while giving residents of all ages the edge to engage in our ever evolving technological society. We’ll continue to mix the best of the old with the best of the new and provide services that meet the needs of our community on a holistic level. Be healthy and safe in all of your celebrations of the seasons.
