About Us

The Groton Public Library Endowment Trust was created in 1996 as a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization. Its purpose is to assist in maintaining the quality and excellence of the Groton Public Library in Groton, Massachusetts. The funds were (and continue to be) raised to supplement but not replace funds appropriated annually by the town.
