The Barrington Area Library will be closed to the public from Thursday, October 12, 2017, through Monday, October 16, 2017. 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. 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 October. 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.
