Wireless Printing Is Coming!

SPOT, The Intelligent HotSpotWe’ll soon be changing how we manage our WiFi, which will mean some changes to your WiFi experience:

  • You will need your valid library card number and CASSIE password to sign on to the libraries’ WiFi.
  • You will (finally!) be able to print from your laptop to the libraries’ printers.

If you have questions, please contact Chris, the computer lab instructor, @ 860-584-7787 x2030

A Free Library Card is Your Most Important School Supply

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Bristol Public Library System joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that our students have the most import school supply of all — a free library card.

Library resources are available to anyone who has a valid library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs, and services that support academic achievement. Our library offers access to important educational resources, like LearningExpress Library, Transparent Language Online, Gale Virtual Reference Library, Salem Press Research Databases, and more.

For information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Bristol Libraries in person or download a library card application.
