Gift tags will be placed on our Giving Tree in the entrance to the library. Patrons may take a tag, purchase a gift suitable for the age on the tag, and bring it back to the Library, unwrapped and with the tag attached, no later than December 19th. The gifts that are collected will be given, through the Stoninton and Groton social service organizations, to children in our community who are in need.

Food for Fines

The Library is participating in the Food for Fines program, allowing people with late fees to wipe the slate clean, during December.

Between November 30th and December 5th the Library will forgive late fees when you bring in food items of an equivalent value which we will donate to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center's food pantry and Groton Social Services. They need canned fruit, tuna, soup, peanut butter, cereal, and any other non-perishable items that are easy to prepare.

We accept food regardless of fines, and appreciate any generosity.Please consider bringing your donation to the library to help those in need.
