Second Hand Prose Books Has Moved to Groton!


After 6 years on Great Road in Acton, we moved the store to Groton, Massachusetts. We wound down in Acton the last day of June, 2013, and reopened to the public in Groton on Tuesday, July 9th at

30A Hollis Street
Groton, MA 01450
978-448-BOOK [-2665]

It's simple to get there: 23 minutes is all it takes to drive the 12.7 miles out Route 119. (Bear right on Hollis Street just past the Groton town hall. The store will be on your right in 1/4 mile.)
