Book Clubs

The Bill Memorial Library is currently home to one established book club, the Food For Thought Book Club.

Food For Thought

The Food for Thought Book Club meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Groton Townhouse, 355 Route 12, to satisfy their appetite for good food and thoughtful discussion.

The former (good food) starts when they arrive at noon and the latter (thoughtful discussion) at 1:00. Copies of each monthly selection are available here at the library, and all are welcome to pick up a book and join in the fun.

A list of previous years’ selections (2005 – 2015) can be found here.
