City Librarian Scott Hughes is proud to announce that starting Sunday October 21st the Bridgeport Public Library plans to provide seven days of service. For the second year in a row at the main Burroughs & Saden Library in Downtown Bridgeport will be open from 1:00 – 5:00 PM.
Being able to use the Library in person, and not just on-line, any day of the week is just one of the many ways the Bridgeport Public Library is working to be there for you.
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.
Now that the OverDrive Media Console app is available in the Amazon App Store for Android, it’s easier for users of the Kindle Fire to access eBooks from OverDrive-powered libraries. Read more →

Unemployed homeowners should contact their mortgage loan servicer to see if they qualify.
