Celebrate National Library Week: April12th-19th
See Our calendar of Events for great things to do during the week!

Come and have a "Blind Date With A Book" from the 11th-19th!  We'll have a set of books covered in paper with "personal ads" on each.  Things like: "Go on a dark adventure with this Scottish Rogue!"  Read your book, fill out the review form, and put that in our raffle can for a chance to win a night out on the town with movie passes to BarnZ and a gift certificate to Frank Jones Pub!  

BARRINGTON EASTER EGG HUNT for ages 1-18 (Barrington Residents Only)

Ages 1-3 join us at 11am and 4-6 Year Old at 1pm in the TOWN GYM to begin with a short story and then outside for the Egg Hunt (rain location will be in the library)!  Three eggs in each group will have special tickets to claim grand prizes!  Please bring your own basket to collect eggs and your camera if you would like to capture the moment!  The Easter Bunny will visit near the end of the hunt.  All children will be able to choose a free book from the library following the hunt.  Thank you to those who donated candy and to our Teen Advisory Group (TAG) for stuffing all the eggs and supervising the hunt!

New library cards sporting the logo and including a convenient key tag are now available. Current patrons will have to surrender their old card numbers to obtain a new card, but those who wish to continue using their old cards can do so indefinitely. The library suggests those using online services for downloading wait to get new cards until they clear their current reserve lists as these will be deleted upon getting a new card number.
