BRISTOL, Tenn. / Va. - The Bristol Public Library will be closed on Thursday, March 7th, and Friday, March 8th, due to a scheduled upgrade to its library management system.
Both the Main Library and Avoca Branch will be closed.
Other systems and resources that are available on the library website will be unavailable at this time as well.
"This system is what provides our catalog, checkout system, and user verification for our public access computers," says Bristol Public Library director Jud Barry. "These kinds of major upgrades are an occasional necessity with library management software. We apologize for any inconvenience."
Barry clarified that the Main Library's public meeting room would still be available for any meetings already scheduled, with entry through the meeting room entrance on the library's upper level.
Library staff will use the days to train on the new software and to attend an all-staff meeting.
Both branches will return to regular hours on Saturday, March 9th.
If you have any questions about these dates or any of the library's programs, please call (276) 645-8780 or visit the library's website.
