We will get back to you ASAP during business hours to confirm your time slot, and to determine what research materials you need.

  1. The day before your appointment, we will call you again to confirm that you will be in and ensure we have all the material you are looking to use.

When you arrive for your appointment:

  1. A patron registration form will be provided.  We ask that you fill it out.
  2. 15 minutes prior to the end of your appointment, we will give you a reminder.
  3. You will be expected to leave promptly at the end of your appointment, as we need to clean your research area and prepare for the next researcher within 15 minutes.
  4. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at hclibrarian@bridgeportpubliclibrary.org

Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Sincerely,
Bridgeport History Center staff
