A new digital service that allows the downloading/ streaming of music, movies, comic books, TV shows, documentaries, e-books, and audio books.  Made possible by generous donations from the Friends of the Barrington Library group and other local donors.

Each patron will be allowed up to 4 check outs per month as long as the monthly budget for the library hasn’t been reached.  Remember, this service is free to you as a card holder, but is a pay per use system that the library pays for.  We ask patrons to be aware and only check out what they can actually watch/listen to at any given time.

Clutter Control: Downsizing Your STUFF
6PM on Wed. May 25th
At the Barrington Public Library

We all have STUFF! Why do we acquire and save more possessions than we need? What happens when our stuff starts to own us? Why can’t we just throw things away?
his upbeat and unique approach, Dave Downs explores the many reasons that our drawers, closets and garages get filled with STUFF. Downs offers helpful hints for managing this difficult problem. Dave uses colorful stories throughout the talk to engage as well as inform the audience. You may recognize a part of yourself in these stories.
Participants will leave knowing that if we are thoughtful about what we acquire; what we keep and what
we discard, we will start to reverse the tendency to bury ourselves in “treasures!"
