The Guilford Free Library is located on the Northeast side of the Guilford Green.
Historical Resource: The library’s Edith B. Nettleton Historical Room contains materials documenting Guilford’s history and genealogy. Included are books, diaries, letters, maps, photographs, postcards, scrapbooks, high school yearbooks, and early tax lists. Also available are microfilm reels of the federal census for New Haven and Middlesex counties from 1800 to 1930. The Shore Line Times newspaper from 1877 to 2008, and the Guilford Courier from its inception in October 1998, are indexed and searchable through the catalog. A portion of the Guilford Keeping Society’s collection of photographs, original manuscripts, and documents is housed here.
Recreation: The mission of the Guilford Free Library is to provide the greatest possible diversity of books, media, information and programs to meet the recreational, cultural, and educational aspirations of all members of the Guilford community.
