We are open! Snowy but open!

Wed, 02/03/2016 - 10:31am
Our snow and no school policies are that the library will be open (in my 30 years we have closed early twice due to weather).

We do cancel all children's programs when school is called off because if it's too dangerous to travel to school it's too dangerous travel to the library. We want everyone to stay safe!

Thank you!

It's time to be creative! SIDEWALK POETRY time is coming.

Tue, 01/19/2016 - 1:27pm
The competition is held each February whereby local residents of any age may submit up to two short poems for consideration. Here are the rules for the competition. A jury of civic leaders and literary experts select, through a blind judging process, up to ten poems each year for imprint in the City’s sidewalks.  In April, to coincide with National Poetry Month, the poems are published on line and the winners are interviewed and get to read their poems on local KYMN radio.  Beginning in May, as soon as weather permits, poems are installed in sidewalks throughout the community.  A celebratory Capstone Event is held the third Thursday of August in Northfield’s downtown Bridge Square.

You may submit up to two very short poems.  They must be submitted from Monday, Feb. 1 through Monday, Feb. 29th to be considered.  Here are the rules.

Check out this recent documentary on the Sidewalk Poetry project.
