Director's Corner

December 2012

For many traditions, December is a season of giving –to family, friends, worthy causes and those in need.   The Northland Public Library Foundation is a 501(c)3 that is charged with raising funds from the community to enhance our existing services. 

During this month the NPL Foundation will be conducting their end of year mail campaign and a “penny war” conducted in the building.  These fundraising efforts will permit Northland to add lending kiosks at 2 locations in our communities (Ross Community Center and Baierl Family YMCA), improve availability of bestsellers, e-resources and other formats and continue to provide varied opportunities for lifelong learning. 
On behalf of the Northland Public Library Board, Administration and staff and the NPL Foundation Board- Best Wishes for the Holiday Season.
