Northfield Township Food Pantry Hunger is Unacceptable in Our CommunityNew! Community Reading Goal

Please help us reach our community goal for the 2020 Summer Reading Program! If a combined 500 readers log 750 minutes (Grades K-8) or log 45 books (Birth-Age 5), the library will make a $500 donation to the Northfield Township Food Pantry. If 900 readers reach these goals, we’ll donate an extra $300. Together we can support our community and stop hunger. Let’s get reading!
