The Gilbert Library

Welcome to Gilbertlibrary.org!



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.
