GROTON —The Bill Memorial Library received a $5,891 grant from the Connecticut Humanities to strategically plan for its future as a library and an historical institution in the Groton Bank Historic District.

After more than a century of service, the Bill Memorial Library will prepare a rigorous strategic planning process that will provide the staff and trustees of the library with the vision and direction necessary to continue meeting the needs of the citizens of Groton and enriching the cultural heritage of the entire state of Connecticut.

Board President Barbara Frucht noted that as an important historic institution in Groton, it is particularly important that the library’s strategic plan include plans for maintaining the original building while also planning for major technological advances. With this plan in mind, the library has started the strategic planning process and hopes to have a three-year strategic plan in place by the end of 2019.
