Calendar of Events

BPL Anime Theater
The Bristol Public Library is hosting our BPL Anime Theater on the first Saturday of the month at 2:00 p.m.  We'll meet in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room to watch anime movies and TV series, discuss anime and related manga, as well as munch on Japanese snacks.  No registration is necessary, simply drop in and enjoy a free movie showing on us!  Up next, we're watching Space Dandy (2014) on June, at 2:00 p.m.  Rated TV-14; approximately 140 minutes.

BPL Book Club
The BPL Book Club will be meeting in the Frances Kegley Conference Room at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 20.  We'll finish reading and discussing The River of Doubt by Candice Millard, and we'll pick up our next reading adventure:  The Liar's Club by Mary Karr.

Remember, anyone is welcome to join BPL Book Club.  We'll bring the books and the Blackbird Bakery Treats, just show up and enjoy an evening of good books, good company, and sweet treats.  If you would like more information on BPL Book Club, feel free to contact Ambrea at 276-821-6147 or

Classic Movie Corner
On the last Thursday of each month, we're celebrating film with a special look back at the classic movies we love and, starting in January, we'll begin screening our favorite westerns on the second Wednesday of the month for our Western Wednesday!

This month, we're watching The Searchers (1956) on June 12 at 2:30 p.m. followed by Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) on June 27 at 5:30 p.m.  Popcorn and water will be provided for all movie attendees.

Like reading?  Then you're going to love Nevermore.  On Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m., Nevermore meets to discuss all manner of books and consume donuts (from Blackbird Bakery, of course) and coffee.  Read at your own pace and share with us what you enjoyed best, and we'll even write a review about it.  (To see more of our Nevermore reviews, check out our lovely little Bookblog.)
