Money DOES Grow on Trees!
As a part of our holiday decorations we are creating a money tree. Each dollar donated will be represented by an origami paper crane on the tree. After the holidays the money will be given to Northfield Human Services for their food bank, which helps the needy of our community throughout the year.
Please help us decorate our tree and help your friends and neighbors at the same time.
Toys for Tots
Brighten the holiday of a local child in need! The Library will be accepting donations for Toys for Tots until December 14. Donations should be new, unwrapped toys. Suggestions include sports equipment, games, action figures, dolls, toy vehicles, puzzles, or any type of toy for babies or toddlers. If the toy requires batteries, please be sure to include them. Thank you for supporting those in need in our community!

Whether you write for a living, would like to write for a living, or simply would like to write, this group is for you. This self-moderated group is an open forum, bringing writers of various levels and interests together to share ideas, techniques, problems, marketing ideas, chapters... all the support creative writers wish for when we're sitting alone and staring at our word processors, typewriters, or quill pens.
