Moving to city hall info-

Yes!! It's happening June 1st
The Northfield Public Library is moving to City Hall.

The MOVE (It’s temporary)
¨ The library will be relocated to City Hall from June 1st through the completion
  of the NEW RENOVATED LIBRARY in December or January.

¨ We will not be closing. Library services will continue at city hall.
¨ We will be removing all library materials– that’s over 65,000 items.  That’s not including desks, chairs, artwork, computers and shelves.  It’s about 100 pallets or 5 semi loads going into storage.
¨ About 9,600 items will move with us to City Hall.  We will still have full access to all our regional library partners materials! It is easy to request items from the other libraries, please ask for a demo.
¨ Yes, we will have volunteer opportunities. Watch for dates!
¨ The library will be on the second floor. There is an elevator and 2 sets of stairs. It’s great we have a space to move to.
