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 5 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.

Skywatch
Wednesday, September 28 @ 7 PM

Cloud Date of Wed. Oct. 5th @ 7PM
Location: Field Beside the Library
NH Astronomical Society members will bring their telescopes for people to look through. The event will be held in the field beside the library (near the park). We will be observing the planets Mars and Saturn, double stars, star clusters, and galaxies.
A "Sky Watch" is simply a gathering of amateur astronomers with a focus on outreach and education for the public at large. A Sky Watch is by definition "beginner-friendly." www.nhastro.com/skywatch.php
Dress warmly & bring red flashlights please. No white lights! A red light will not ruin your night vision as much as white light will. You can cover the lens of a regular light with red plastic or tail-light repair tape. A dim light will seem bright once your eyes become dark-adapted. The large telescopes brought by NHAS members will be set up and pointed towards interesting objects…this is a family friendly event. 
Parents are asked to watch children closely as the equipment utilized may have cables, or be knocked down easily.

Barrington Police K9 Demonstration - October 1st at 10:30am 
Join us in the field next to the library  to meet Lt. George Joy and his K9 partner Gypsy. They will be demonstrating K9 handling techniques. Demos are designed to portray the skill involved and the work performed by the K-9 teams on a daily basis, plus give us an opportunity to gain knowledge and ask questions about the K-9 Unit here in our town.
No Registration Required.  Open to the public. - 
Please do not bring your dog to this event. Thank you.
