Friends of the Barrington Library
"A good Friend is a great treasure." Benjamin Franklin
Friends of the Barrington Public Library is a volunteer group incorporated in 1996 as a 501C-3 charitable organization. Friends share a common belief that a thriving public library is a valuable community asset that must be nourished and supported.

Its mission is quite simple:
- Encourage greater use of the library and its services;
- Provide additional support through fundraising activities and the encouragement of gifts, endowments and memorials;
- Promote volunteerism; and
- Help expand library resources. 

Since 1996, the Friends has contributed over $10,000 to fund annual passes to museums, and to support the Summer Reading Program, the youth audio book collection, the Adopt*A*Magazine program and many other resources. In addition, the group conducts the annual perennial sale in June. Funds raised from this sale have provided equipment not supported through the tax-funded budget, and, we annually save funds towards helping out when a new library is, hopefully, voted for by the people of Barrington.

We always welcome new Friends to help with developing new programs, fund-raising and volunteering at the library. The Friends generally meet on the Fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. either at the library or at the home of one of the Friends. Meeting announcements will be posted at the library.

Give as little or as much time as you want. Participate once a year, be active throughout the year, or work on a specific event or project. Just a little of your time and energy can make our great little library a tremendous resource for everyone in town.
