Bishopston Library

EVENTS CANCELLED – Update 17.3.20
In keeping with current guidance to avoid social events and maintain a distance from other people, we are cancelling our forthcoming events. We are doing this in the best interests of our audiences and volunteers, to keep people as well as possible and reduce the spread of coronavirus. We will try and keep you informed about the library and what you can do online, so do check out our website and Facebook page.
All online ticket purchases have been refunded. For cash sales at the library please ask at the library for a full refund (at the time of writing libraries have not  announced any changes to opening hours but this may well happen).

NEWS FLASH We are delighted to have been successful in their bid to Bristol Libraries Innovation Fund, enabling us to run an exciting project for young people age 17-23 to develop and display their talents. We are now looking to recruit a small group of young people keen to volunteer some time to help shape and deliver the project. More details here
