The Trustees were first elected in 1854 to oversee the operations of the public library. They:
  • establish written policies governing library activities and services
  • engage in on-going planning which assesses the needs and the role of the library in the community
  • ensure that the library meets the community's needs
  • work on preparation of the annual library budget and its adoption by the Town
  • monitor and oversee maintenance of the buildings and grounds and regularly review facility needs
  • have responsibility for hiring and evaluation the Library Director and working with the Personnel Board on job classifications for all staff
  • promote, with the Friends of the Groton Public Library, the library and act as library advocates in the community
  • study and support legislation which will benefit the library and the larger community
In 1996, under a state grant and vote of the Town, the Library undertook a major addition to the existing building. The renovation/expansion of the Library was completed in March of 1999.

The Groton Public Library is served by a salaried Director, Head of Adult Services, and Head of Children's Services; by additional staff on hourly wages; and by a corps of volunteers.
