Welcome to the Groton Public Library in Groton, Massachusetts!

We offer a vibrant and welcoming sanctuary to spark curiosity and open minds. We hope you use this website and visit the library often to spark your curiosity, and in doing so, serendipitously discover music, art, programs, a new favorite author, meet others, and/or simply a place to be quiet.

The library’s vibrancy stems from heavy daily use (GPL has one of the highest uses-per-capita in the state with 21 check-outs per person annually) and numerous programs, including: book and other discussion groups; summer reading programs for kids, teens, and adults; winter reading programs for kids and teens; and museum passes; as well as free online databases and download or streaming digital content (books, audiobooks, videos, music, comics, magazines).

As a sanctuary, we offer quiet study rooms and spaces, along with comfortable chairs facing west, overlooking the meadows where one can read, reflect, and refresh.

However you use your library, the staff is here to help you with all your library and information needs and strives always to assist you in a friendly and professional manner. We appreciate the great support we receive from this community and we always welcome your suggestions to make your library better.

Library Director
