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.

White Memorial Visit Monday, Oct 18th
We’re excited to have White Memorial visit the library on Monday, October 18th at 4 pm. Carrie Szwed, educational director will present the program “Wildlife for the Win!” Animals have some amazing attributes and accomplish phenomenal feats! After hearing about some amazing animal we’ll see who sets records in the state of CT. Who is the fastest? Strongest? Longest? A live snake and salamander will be on hand to accept their honors!
