The Bill Memorial Library was given by Frederic Bill to the people of Groton in 1888 in memory of his sisters, Eliza and Harriet. The mission of the library is to meet the changing needs of our community in a comfortable and unique historic setting by stimulating imagination through reading, viewing, and listening for pleasure; providing the resources for lifelong learning; inspiring readers of all ages; and connecting to the online world.
The Bill Memorial Library is a 501(c)3 nonprofit library that relies heavily on private funding sources to maintain services and programs. There are a number of ways to contribute to the Bill Memorial's operating expenses.


Making a tax-deductible gift to the library helps us to continue providing the highest levels of service and meeting the challenges of a continually changing informational environment.
