Northfield — Public Library

Extracted from "History of the Connecticut Valley in Massachusetts, Volume II," by Louis H. Everts, 1879.

      Northfield has a free public library of 1600 volumes, which was founded by private enterprise as a social library in 1813, and as such continued until December, 1878, when it was donated to the town. The original projector of the enterprise was Thomas Power, of Boston, who settled in Northfield in 1812.
