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

Food For Thought

Food for Thought meets at 1 o'clock in the afternoon on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at Par Four Restaurant, 93 Plant Street, Groton.


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.
