Philip Groia Memorial Global Studies Collection

Philip Groia Global Studies Section
A Teacher Can Change Lives
Philip Groia was a beloved social studies teacher at Paul J. Gelinas, Jr. Junior High School for over 30 years. When Mr. Groia passed away in 2014, he left a substantial bequest to build a Global Studies collection at the Emma S. Clark Memorial Library. The library is grateful to Mr. Groia for his generous donation that will enrich our community for years to come.

NEW ITEMS added to the collection can be found in the Delaney Room on the first floor of the library.
