Show Us the Love on March 19

In today’s tough economy, Bristol Public Library System offers free resources to help people find jobs and learn new skills. People of all ages and backgrounds borrow materials, gather for book discussions, and bring their children to storytime. By visiting Bristol’s libraries, people come to find their place in this community. Bristol Public Library System helps this community thrive.

And now we need you to keep us thriving! Won’t you join us in the Bristol City Council chambers for our budget hearing at 6 pm on March 19 and show the Council that you support your libraries?

Hurricane Closure

The Bristol Public Library System will close today, October 29, at noon due to Hurricane Sandy. We expect to reopen for normal business hours tomorrow (8:30 for Bristol Main and 10 for Manross).

While we’re closed, you may still use the library catalogs to place holds, check your library card, or renew items. The library’s databases, downloadable audiobooks, and eBooks will also remain accessible with your library card while we’re closed.
