The Gilbert Library

Welcome to!

we are very excited to offer this new way of connecting Northfield with its neighborhood library and its community. Here you can find where we are located, when we are open, our history, new books, how to contact us, upcoming events and more.

We will add links that will connect you to area happenings and things of interest.

Stop in and see us!

White Memorial Coming to the Library!
The White Memorial Conservation Center will be presenting “Who’s a Herp?” on Wednesday, Nov 1st at 4 pm. Reptiles and amphibians are defined by certain characteristics that set them apart from each other. Through up close encounters with several live animals, we will teach participants about the characteristics, habitats, life cycles and adaptations of various species of reptiles and amphibians throughout CT. Then we’ll discuss what these two groups of “herps” have in common. Program is for children of all ages. For more information call or email the library. 860-283-8176

Tea at Three
Come and join your neighbors for a cup of tea at the library on the first Wednesday of each month at 3 pm. We’ll have tea, cookies and conversation. Come alone or bring a friend! Next dates are Wednesdays Oct 4th, Nov 8th (2nd Wednesday because of program on the 1st) and Dec 6th.
