The Manross Library offers materials, programs & resources to users in Forestville and the Greater Bristol area. Manross Library has also become a hub for the homeschooling community in the region. In the first year of its existence the Bristol Public Library owned fewer than 4,000 books. Today the entire collection includes over 200,000 books, magazines, DVDs, CDs and other material. Our library has served the public for generations and continues to play an integral role in the cultural life of the city.
