*Concert on the Lawn*

The Bristol Public Library presents the band, Take II, on Sunday, August 18th at 4:00 p.m. Bob “Doc” Walton and Ellie Kovell will perform music ranging from the 60's to well into the 2000's, with a repertoire of over 1600 songs! Bring a blanket or lawn chair and join us on the back lawn of the library for this free performance.

Now on Display

Now on display at the Bristol Public Library is a very unusual collection of Russian samovars, belonging to Judi Sheridan of North Bloomfield. Samovars are metal containers traditionally used to heat and boil water.
Since heated water is usually used to make tea, a samovar has an attachment on the top of its lid to hold and heat a teapot filled with a tea concentrate.  The antiques on display were typically used in and around Russia, European countries, as well as the Middle East.

The CLEVNET app will be down for the foreseeable future.  The owner of the mobile application and the vendor that controls access to the app are different. Unfortunately, the vendor unexpectedly disabled the app, rendering it inoperable.  An entirely new, next-generation mobile app for CLEVNET is in the works, but it is not yet available.
