An Invitation to Serve Your Library:

The Bristol Library depends on citizen involvement to ensure that its services are as reflective of the community needs as possible. The Bristol Library Board of Trustees is a seven member board with membership appointed by said Board to three- year terms. The Board meets at the library on the second Tuesday of every month at 7pm.

As a policy-making body, the Board of Trustees guides the development of library services. Effective trustees bring to the library knowledge of the community, a commitment to the rights of citizens to information,

and willingness to continually maintain and strengthen library services.


If you are interested in serving on the Library Board, please send an inquiry and brief resume to the email below. This expression of interest will make your name available for consideration but will not, of course, guarantee appointment. For more information, please contact our  Library Manager, Kimberlee Petrino, at 585-229-5862 or email her at  kpetrino@pls-net.org.

We are a Non Profit 501(c)3  Organization. Your donations to the Bristol Library might be Tax Deductible.
