  • We are ecstatic to announce that the Barrington Library won the NH Library Card Sign Up challenge for the 2nd year in a row!
    This competition was open to all libraries in New Hampshire to see who could sign up the greatest percentage of new library cards in the month of September, taking into account the relative size of their communities. We beat out the competition by signing up a total of 114 new patrons!
    Our library name will be engraved on a trophy for the 2nd year in a row, and it will be displayed at our library for one year.
    Although we are small, our library strives to exceed standards!

Thursday, November 2nd 6PM: FREE Concert!

'Ragtime' Jack Radcliffe has been performing for more than 45 years. He is a master of traditional country blues and stride piano, and a powerful singer/songwriter, as well. He also accompanies himself on the guitar and harmonicas and has lately added the fiddle to his arsenal of musical weapons.

He was a fixture on the coffeehouse circuit in the late '60s and early '70s. His major early musical partnership was with Georgia country blues guitarist and singer Larry Johnson, in 1968 -1970. His band 'The New Viper Revue' pushed the genre envelopes of blues, folk, rock 'n' roll and jazz from 1972 -1976. Jack resumed his solo career in 1977, then teamed up with reed player Al Oliveira in 1983.

Please register as we have limited seating and hope to fill the room!  Bring a friend and enjoy!
