It’s a red letter day! We know some of you have been waiting for this — ALL DVDs can now be placed on hold from our catalog at bristollib.com.
As we are a reciprocating library, this means you can also now place holds on DVDs at other libraries in our consortium and they will be shipped to Bristol — just as if they were a book, magazine, or CD! (Admittedly, some libraries may still refuse to send newer or in-demand items).
The check out period for DVDs remains 7 days for entertainment films and 14 days for documentary-type films. You may only have 6 DVDs checked out at a time (including 2 “new” DVDs).
As with all other library materials, you will not be able to renew a DVD checked out to you if someone has placed it on hold.
If you have questions about hold policies, please contact the Circulation Desk at 860-584-7787 x2023.
Due to snow, the Bristol Public Library System will close a 4 pm. Our catalog and databases remain accessible through bristollib.com.
Please join us Saturday, December 7th at 9:45 am, for the showing of the film “The Book Thief” located at AMC Loew’s, 220 New Britain Avenue, in Plainville; followed by lunch at the Imperial Buffet. We will meet in the lobby of the Loew’s Theater before the movie, and to ‘register’ for the lunch. Participants pay the cost of admission and lunch. All are welcome.
For more information, or to register, call or visit either the Main Library, located at 5 High Street in Bristol (ph: 860.584.7787 ext. 2023); or the F.N. Manross Memorial Library, located at 260 Central Street in Forestville (ph: 860.584.7790)
In 2014, the Bristol History Room will be open on select Saturdays (in addition to its regular hours)!
