Effective July 1, 2011, the City of Gilbert is contracting with Bertha Bartlett Public Library in Story City for library services. That means all the library benefits Gilbert residents have enjoyed, but with the added bonus of having a physical location within Gilbert city limits.

We'll have programs for preschool through 4th graders every Tuesday at 3:30 pm from June 2 to July 21. PLUS Dan Wardell is making his first-ever stop at the Gilbert Library on his annual summer reading road trip on June 18 at 3 pm! Pick up reading logs at the Circulation Desk. We have some great prizes for all ages this summer.
