Please note that the dates of this construction project have changed, due to circumstances beyond our control. The Library will be open from 10/12 through 10/16. Read on for details, including new closing dates. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Barrington Area Library will be closed to the public from Thursday, October 19, 2017, through Monday, October 23, 2017. The parking lot and outdoor book return will be closed as well. Construction work to address an urgent safety need will be taking place on the library entrance driveway and sidewalks. The scope of the work, the use of heavy equipment, and the inavailability of sidewalks will make the premises unsafe for library customers.

Library services will be available via phone, e-mail, and online chat during the following hours:
• Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Monday from 9 AM to 5 PM,
• Sunday from 1 PM to 5 PM.

Locker delivery and materials pick-up will also take place during the closure, although no items will be due on the closing dates. Of course, digital library services will be available via the website and online catalog, as always. Library programs scheduled for that time will be moved to other locations, cancelled, or rescheduled: check the online events calendar for details. Please monitor our website or social media accounts for more details as we get closer to the construction dates. Also, please be advised that the time frame for the project may shift, due to weather conditions. We apologize for any inconvenience, but it is of critical importance that this project be completed before winter weather arrives.
