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 Par 4 Restaurant, 93 Plant Street here in Groton, to satisfy their appetite for good food and thoughtful discussion. The former starting when they arrive and the latter 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.
The Food for Thought Book Club will be meeting via
Zoom, or, weather permitting, at the picnic tables here at BML. If you wish to participate, give your name and email address to a staff member (call the number below), and you will receive a message with the link and password for the event. Discussions take place at 1:00 p.m.
