The Gay-Kimball Library is a Public Library made possible by Walter N. Gay’s land donation in 1927 and a bequest from Warren Kimball’s estate in 1945.
     Our mission is to meet the recreational and informational needs of the community in a creative, professional, and welcoming manner. The Library will offer diverse resources and provide a community meeting place for people of all ages.


Holiday Hours: We will close early at 5pm on Thanksgiving Eve (11/27) & be closed all day on Thanksgiving (11/28)

Upcoming Program: Everything you ever wanted to know about Coyotes.  Learn fact from fiction about coyotes with expert Chris Schadler. Wednesday, October 23rd @7pm.


We now have Nature Backpacks!

Plus coming soon – a second Backyard backpack!  The following sponsors made this possible: Sam’s Outdoor Outfitters, Children’s Literacy Foundation & anonymous donors.     


       WWII Letters

Did you know that we have a treasure trove of WWII letters written from 1942-1944 to Librarian, Annie Clark?  The letters were solicited by the Librarian and Library Trustees, George Ripley, A. H. Hanscom and J. T. Hawkins, to keep a record of all the Troy residents who were in the military and where they were stationed.  There is a good chance you know some of these folks or their relatives!
