August News


The Connecticut Author Trail is Coming Saturday, August 29!

We are thrilled to host local author Adrienne Kane at 1 pm on Saturday, August 29 as part of this year's Connecticut Author Trail event. Ms. Kane will discuss her recent book, United States of Bread, in which she details America's rich history of unique, homemade bread recipes. This collection of 75 American recipes celebrates our nation's rich bread-making traditions and offers advice and intriguing information for bread makers of all levels. Ms. Kane is also the author of United States of Pie, a cookbook of regional heirloom American pies. Ms. Kane will be selling and signing copies of her books, and refreshments will be served.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is appreciated. For more information or to register, call the library.
Ms. Kane's visit is part of the 7th Annual Connecticut Author Trail.

You will still be able to request books from Groton Public, Mystic & Noank, and Waterford Libraries.
If you need a book that is not at any of the above libraries, please call the library at (860) 445-0392 or email us here. We have limited access to other libraries across the state and will work to acquire a copy for you.
