Library volunteers needed June 8-11


Right now we need volunteers to help pack up the library before the renovation begins! June 8-11, in particular! Beginning June 8 the Library will pack up its entire collection for storage while the building is under renovation. We are looking for volunteers to help us with this amazing task! There are LOTS of ways you can help. We'll need packers, box builders, snack/lunch helpers, runners, sign-in desk helpers, box movers and cart loaders.

We will have three 2-hour shifts per day. We will pack on Monday June 8 through Thursday, June 11. The shifts will be 8-10 AM, 10-12 noon and 1-3 PM. Sign up for whatever works for you that week. You may volunteer for multiple shifts! The City of Northfield requires that all volunteers sign a waiver form and also undergo a background check, which you will find on line or at the library (see below).

There are two ways to sign up. Go to, print and fill out the forms and return to the library. Or just stop by the library. We will have the forms available for you here.

If you have any questions call the library at 507-645-6606 and ask for Debby or Laurie. City restrictions require that volunteers are of high school age (16) or older. Volunteer signup deadline is May 15. Thanks for your help!
