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.

FUN FOOD EVENT at the library!
Do you enjoy cooking and trying something new? We have a COOKBOOK CLUB that is meeting on the second Saturday of each month at the Library. 
Participants meet and share a recipe they have tried from that months cookbook and discuss what they like/disliked about the cookbook in general. Each month there is a different title that our Inter-Library Loan Librarian gets multiple copies of so everyone gets to take it home and try it out. This is a yummy way to get together with other cooks and try out new recipes! 
If you would like to come to the next meeting on September 10th at 12pm, please register through the online calendar of events and come get a copy of this month's book "My Kitchen Year" by Ruth Reichl - we still have a few copies available!

Author Kevin Martin brings you through the woods and into some cities all over NH to find these impressive living parts of our landscape during his slideshow at the library. Some of the hikes highlighted include the state's largest northern white cedars in Clarksville that have been marked by bears for generations and the horse chestnut in Portsmouth that was planted by a signer of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. NH has 7 national champion Big Trees and a few of those are also shown. After the presentation, Charlie Tatham, of the Barrington Conservation Commission, and our presenter Mr. Martin, will lead you on a hike in Barrington to view a big tree (or two) right here in town! Participants will have to drive (carpool) to the hike site at Samuel A Tamposi Water Supply Reserve (SATWaSR) after the presentation. SATWaSR parking lot is on the west side of Route 125, which is just on the Barrington side of the Lee town line. The hike will be about 1-2 miles in length with gentle slopes. Hiking Portion is Optional.
