Director's Corner



Each household in the 5 communities which directly support Northland spend $3.75 per month for Northland Public Library.  In the past few years studies in Wisconsin, Florida, Colorado and Pennsylvania have demonstrated that for every dollar a community invests for library service, 4 dollars are returned to the community through:

·       Library staff who buy groceries, visit dentists, repair cars, etc. in the community.

·       Library purchase direct services such as plumbers and supplies.

·       Libraries are anchor stores.  Studies have shown that when folks go to the library, they spend about $20.00 at other places, just as part of the trip.

Supporting Northland Public Library is a smart investment.
