You're invited!

Join the Bristol Public Library on Tuesday, December 18, at 6:00 p.m. for our Christmas edition of "Bingo at the BPL!" As always, we'll offer free bingo, snacks, and prizes for our winners; however, we'll also have special Christmas-themed prizes, hot chocolate and tea, and an ugly Christmas sweater contest.

Bingo is free to attend and guests are welcome to drop in any time they like. To participate in our ugly Christmas sweater contest, arrive about 15 minutes early to pick up a number and, at the end of the evening, everyone will receive a card to vote for their favorite Christmas sweater (ugly or not!). Winner will receive a special prize!

Attention Patrons!

Due to the expected snowy weather this weekend, we have decided to make changes to some of our due dates.  If you have books or other materials due on December 9 through December 12, your books will now be due back on December 14.

We want everyone to stay safe and warm, and we don't want people to travel if it isn't necessary.  Enjoy your library books and movies a little longer and stay safe out there!
