Saturday, March 14 - April 3, 2020
The Bridgeport History Center is closed as a part of the Bridgeport Public Library’s efforts to address concerns about COVID-19’s spread. All BHC programs are likewise canceled.
Please keep an eye on the Bridgeport Public Library’s main webpage for updates as the situation progresses.
This closure impacts our staff’s ability to respond to reference questions in a timely manner or some questions altogether. Please be patient if you have recently sent us an inquiry. In the mean time, we encourage patrons to explore our digital collections, archives and manuscripts finding aids, and oral histories, all of which are available on this website.
Thank you for your understanding.
