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.
The new collection of Large Print and Audio Books from the Connecticut State Library has arrived at Manross Library. These materials will be available to the public for circulation starting Thursday, December 12!
