The Groton Public Library hosts three book discussion groups for adults that meet monthly—the GPL Book Discussion Group, the Mystery Book Group, and the Great Books Group. All are welcome to get involved! Participation is free and open to all interested adults. No registration is necessary—just read the book and come to a meeting. You are welcome to come to just one meeting, or come to all. Occasionally, sign-up may be requested for book discussions when an author visit or special program is planned and the advance sign-up helps us in our preparations.
GPL Book Discussion Group
This group reads recent works of fiction and nonfiction. It generally meets the fourth Tuesday of the month, from 7:00 - 8:45 p.m. in the Community Room or Sibley Hall. It does not meet in July or August. The last meeting of the year (June) usually includes a potluck dinner at a member’s home. Please check our Events Calendar for exact dates and location.
