Coronovirus Update

Bristol’s libraries and museums will be closed until 1 May 2020. However if you have the ‘Libby’ app you can download ebooks using your library card. To do this simply download the app – find your library – enter your library card – borrow a title and start reading.
Not a library member?
You can still become a library member and begin to use the remote facilities, such as e-books and magazines and audio books.

Join online and email your temporary number to [email protected]
CC will upgrade you to a membership which will give you access to our Bristol Libraries electronic resources from home while we are closed.

Everyone at FoCCaL hopes you stay safe and well

“till we meet again” 

The Friends of Clifton Centre and Library (FoCCaL) exist to promote the library as a place where local people can come together to enjoy themselves, meet new people, and learn.

We are a voluntary group of local residents and we welcome anyone who would like to get involved. We host a variety of events and support other groups who run not for profit events or courses for the community. If you’d like to help or have suggestions please get in touch.NEWS We are delighted to have been awarded funding by the council’s Libraries Innovation Fund to install audio visual equipment in the library. This will be a great asset for the library and means we can provide high quality illustrated talks and by public demand we will be able to re-start the popular film nights.  for updates check our noticeboard and sign up to our mailing list below.

Every visit counts towards the council’s assessment figures. So please attend our fantastic calendar of events as well as our regular events.

And don’t forget all the great library facilities. It’s not just book loans! There’s free WiFi, free computer and internet use, free ordering of any book, DVD, CD or audiobook from 150 libraries in the southwest for pick-up in Clifton Library, with email notification when the item arrives. There are magazines, plus newspapers such as the Bristol Post, The Times and The Guardian.

As well as making good use of the library, you can also help by volunteering. And don’t forget to sign up to out newsletter (below) to hear about the latest FoCCaL news and events, and follow us onFacebook and Twitter.
