Bristol Public Library Main Branch to be closed to the Public during Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion

September 16, 2013

The Bristol Public Library’s Main Downtown Branch will be closed to the public September 20-22 during the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion. Regular hours will resume on Monday, September 23. The security set up for BRRU creates a situation where people without tickets or passes can enter on the first floor of the Library and exit directly into the crowd by leaving through the Piedmont doors on the ground floor. Parking for the festival also leaves Library patrons with nowhere to park. Please note, however, that the Avoca Branch of the Bristol Public Library will remain open it regular hours Friday 10 AM—5 PM and Saturday, 10 AM – Noon.
