In January 1892, the Bristol Library and Reading Room opened its facility on the 2nd floor of the Ebers' Block.

According to the Google Books source below, this put Bristol on the map as the first Connecticut town in the state with a free library:



On page 521 of the above resource we learn that eventually Charles J. Root purchased the "the old Ebers building and site adjoining the Gridley House, tore down the ram shackle wooden buildings and erected one of the finest business blocks in town."

Fortunately, the Library had found new quarters by that time!
