Creating the Library Oasis at the NCRC

The Library Oasis Project at the Northfield Community Resource Center (NCRC) will transform a frequently used link space into a staffed and furnished library space where youth and adults will be able play, rest, work, read, and gather whenever they are in the area--after school, on a walk, or visiting one of the many service providers located there. 

By locating this new "oasis"--stocked with materials and trained staff--right next to other community services and centers (e.g., Fifty North, Head Start, daycare, Northfield Community College Collaborative, Community Action Center, Healthy Community Initiative, and Rice County Social Services) the Library seeks to reduce barriers, build community, and enhance access to valuable resources, programming, and gathering spaces for Northfielders of all ages. 

On this webpage dedicated to the project, you can explore the space in its current form and read about the exciting transformations that the Library, supported by the City and the Friends, plans to accomplish over the next three years.

The Friends are mounting a 3 year capital campaign to raise $100,000 for all dimensions of this project, and our goal for each of the next years--2022, 2023, 2024--is to raise $33,000.
