Gilbert Public Library

Library Type

Gilbert Public Library is one of four public libraries to serve the Quad Cities in the rural Iron Range of Minnesota. We are staffed by one full-time librarian and three part-time support staff. The area is experiencing a decline in population and incomes as the major industry and employer, the iron mines, scale back on their work force. A high proportion of families are low income and roughly 45% of area students qualify for free or reduced lunch.
