The main purpose of The Northern Lights Library Network (NLLN) is to coordinate services and share resources among all types of libraries in 23 counties of North Central and Northwest Minnesota through administrative, technological, and educational support. With a membership of over 300 academic, school, public, and special libraries, NLLN is geographically the largest of the 7 multi-type library cooperative systems in Minnesota.

NLLN scholarships provide supplemental funds to library staff and library board members, for continuing education programs and events. They are awarded as incentive for individual growth and career development, and to enhance library services throughout the NLLN region
NLLN advocates for all libraries by supporting individual library professionals in our region who devote their time and service to ongoing work of the profession. Their activity is above and beyond their daily job it improves and strengthens the profession, and is a benefit to the entire library community.
The NLLN Governing Board has allocated funds for cooperative projects by NLLN and/or NLLN member libraries. A cooperative project must involve more than one type of library, and can be done either within a single community or across a larger region.
