our newest materials...


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.

Location: Field next to playground at the public library (map it)
The Barrington Public Library will kick off the Summer Reading Program on June 24th in the field next to the Barrington Public Library.

We will begin at 6:30pm with a Family Picnic Time, and there will be a 7:00pm performance by juggler/comedian Bryson Lang that is sure to entertain the whole family, thanks to a generous donation by Federal Savings Bank of Barrington! Bring a blanket/chair and your own picnic to enjoy with friends and neighbors!
Barrington families and card holders can register for the Library’s Summer Reading Program at this event and sign-up for story times, craft sessions and special programs being offered for varied age groups. The Friends of the Library will pull Raffle Basket winners following the performance.
Haunted Hikes of New Hampshire
Wednesday, June 29 @ 6:30 PM

Join Marianne O’Connor as she shares ghost stories, legends and lore associated with some of NH’s premier hiking trails. This summer, kids and adults alike will want to get up off the couch and explore these haunts for themselves! This one hour presentation will highlight unusual ghost stories and spooky surprises on many NH trails. Visit haunted huts, abandoned villages, and wonder at whether a UFO actually landed at Indian Head!
Come early for limited seating.
Paid for with a donation from Fabulous Find of Kittery Maine.
This will be a group that meets monthly to share and critique writing they are working on at home. A place where writer’s can share their work, get feedback, and meet others who are writing.  Dates for upcoming meetings will be: June 25th, July 23rd, August 27th, October 1st, November 5th, and December 3rd from 10:30AM-Noon.   If you are interested in coming once a month to such a group, please e-mail deskclerk1@barringtonlibrary.com with your name and contact information. High school age and up are welcomed to join. Although it is wonderful if you can make all the sessions; it is not required.  You can certainly select ones that fit your schedule and take a weekend off when necessary.

Monday, June 27 @ 1:00 PM

Barrington families/card holders are invited to join us for the showing of Zootopia June 27th at 1pm.
