The Book Bag Outreach Service of the Barrington Area Library is available to schools, preschools, governmental units, non-profit organizations, and businesses within the library’s district. With the book bag program, the Barrington Area Library provides supplemental materials from the library for your classroom or group, and per your request, we will deliver or arrange pick-up of materials.

Depending upon availability, up to 30 items may be sent in each bag. In the case of multiple classrooms from one school requesting the same topic, a maximum of 50 items will be sent.

For more information or if you have any questions about the school book bag loan program, contact Youth Services Librarian Mitch Walker via email at
