Reference Services

We’re here to help! The Groton Public Library’s Reference Librarians provide assistance during all hours the Library is open.  We can provide the answers to questions on a wide range of topics and if we can’t find the answer, we’ll refer you to other possible sources of information or assistance.

Your Reference Librarian is ready to help you:

  • Locate information in books, periodicals, databases, and on the Internet.

  • Sign-in to use the computers and show you how to search the Internet or use other computer applications.
  • Suggest good books.
  • And much more, just ask us!

What we can’t do:

  • Conduct extensive family history research.
  • Provide advice on medical, tax, or legal matters.
