Join us for Reliving the 1940s: Those Were the Days! Rescheduled from January, the program will recall growing up in the time when radio held center stage and the big band sound dominated music. Also, see what amazing things can be learned from the 1940 Census, and how World War II changed everything. There is no charge for this event. Please register in advance by stopping by the Library or calling 860-584-7787 x2023.

Due to changes at the Connecticut State Library, the Bristol Public Library System will suspend inter-library loan services through the statewide ReQuest network beginning May 16 until a new state-wide system is in place in the autumn.
How will this affect you? If an item you desire is not available through our consortium, Library Connection, we will not be able to get it for you until the new state-wide system is in place. However, as Library Connection comprises 30 libraries, the majority of item requests placed are readily filled and very few patrons will be affected.
Remember, as long as the Connecticard program remains funded, your Bristol library card is valid at any public library in the state and you are welcome to visit libraries outside our consortium to borrow their items directly from them.
