A Centennial History of the Northfield Carnegie Library
A project of: Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants Program
Northfield Public Library
With the grant the Northfield Public Library was able to research, write and published a centennial history of the Northfield Carnegie Library entitled "Everlasting Influences: The Centennial History of the Northfield Carnegie Public Library 1910-2010."
The Centennial History of the Northfield Carnegie Public Library 1910-2010 celebrates the legacy that Andrew Carnegie, Hiram Scriver and other residents bequeathed to the Northfield community. The book itself is a legacy in that it is a permanent record of the importance of the public library in their community. Besides being cataloged and made a part of our library's collection, copies of the book were distributed to regional library system (SELCO), Minnesota State Library Services, the Northfield Historical Society, Northfield library supporters, MHS and state representatives. They expect to make a digital version of the book available in the future as well.
