The Groton Public Library Children's Room strives to create a warm, inviting, and fun environment for children from infancy through fifth grade. We are committed to providing ongoing support to parents, teachers, caregivers, homeschooling families, and community organizations.

We invite teachers to email kids@gpl.org ahead of a school project. We can pull materials for children to check out or use in the Library on different topics.

Homeschool families are welcome to request or recommend materials. We are always happy to help! Email kids@gpl.org and let us know your needs.
