We believe that libraries change people’s lives. They are cornerstones of democracy. The Bridgeport Public Library provides opportunities for residents to learn, enjoy and achieve. To accomplish that mission, the Bridgeport Public Library offers free and open access to a relevant collection, staff knowledge, and modern facilities.
Any registered voter in the city of Bridgeport who has a high level of familiarity with the city’s libraries and who holds a library card may apply. Individuals who have a strong interest and wish to help reposition the Bridgeport Public Library facilities, collections, programs, and staff to help focus on building community, helping people, and changing lives are attributes sought. Applicants must be able to attend two or more monthly meetings.
