The Children’s Department at the Bristol Public Library proudly announces that Story Times and Reading Clubs begin OCTOBER 7, 2013 and run for TEN WEEKS through December 13, 2013! Registration is NOT required for story times or reading clubs in the Children’s Department at the Bristol Public Library…just come to the library and have FUN!

The lower level meeting rooms of the Main Library will remain open to the public from 5:00 to 9:00 PM this Friday, July 19th. Please use the side door off of the library’s circle drive after our normal closing time of 5:00 PM to get to the lower level. The upper two levels of the Library, with its collections and regular services, will not be available after 5:00 PM.
At 6:30, we will be showing a PG movie from 2013, about a small-time circus magician who finds “over the rainbow” adventure dealing with three witches and the inhabitants of a land that’s far, far away from Kansas. (Want to be sure of the title of the film? Please call 860-584-7787 ext. 2017.)
Free popcorn, courtesy of the Friends of the Bristol Public Library, and ice-water will be available from 5:00 to 9:00 PM.
Bristol Public Library and its branch, F.N. Manross Memorial, will be closed Thursday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day. The Library and its branch will resume normal hours on Friday, July 5.
While we’re closed, you may still drop off items in our book drops or use the library catalogs to place holds, check your library card, or renew items. The libraries’ databases will also remain accessible with your valid Bristol library card while we’re closed. These resources can be accessed through our website bristollib.com.
iCONN, the state-wide database system accessible to all Connecticut library card holders, is migrating from Cengage Gale resources to EBSCO on July 1.
This change will affect the results you get from searches using the “Find Articles” search box as well as searches in other iCONN resources that provide access to articles. Previously unavailable magazine subscriptions, such as Consumer Reports, Scientific American and Time, will become available.
This change will not affect access to any of iCONN’s ProQuest newspapers, or HeritageQuest, or iCONN’s collection of downloadable audio books.
Bristol Public Library and its branch, F.N. Manross Memorial, will be closed on Saturdays, from June 29 through August 31. The Library and its branch will resume normal Saturday hours on September 7.
