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.

Valentine Tea Take Away
Our annual Valentine Doll Tea will be held this year not in the traditional way but we are still going to hold our popular fundraiser! Instead of having tea together at the firehouse we will have a take away version with the same delicious tea choices that you can have at home! Tickets are $12 that will include your choice of tea and tea sandwiches with an assortment of cookie desserts. Tickets for the Sat, Feb 4th event can be purchased at the library during regular hours.

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! The next dates for tea are Wednesday, Feb 1st, Mar 1st and Apr 5th.

Holiday Hours
The library will be closed Monday, Jan 16th for Martin Luther King Jr Day..

Snow Days
The library follows the Litchfield School system with their decision to close for inclement weather. If the Litchfield schools are closed, the library will be also.
