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!

Back to School and Back to Regular Library Hours
Summer is over, the kids are back to school and the library is back to regular hours. We are open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2-7.

New Reading Contest!!
The library has a new reading contest for the fall. All you have to do is read 5 books and you get to pick out a book to keep from our “Book Basket.” You also get a chance at our monthly drawing for a free ice cream!! The more you read – the more chances you’ll have!! Stop in the library for more information.

Movie Friday
Our first Movie Friday for the season will be September 26th at 4pm. Popcorn and juice will be served. Come and watch a movie with your friends!
