Welcome - we're glad you're here!

You can always stop by the Barrington Area Library during business hours to get a library card, but our Customer Service team can also sign you up for a new library card or renew your card online.

Why get a library card? Your Barrington Area Library card is your passport to new and innovative services like Parking Lot Pick-Up, Borrow By Mail, and Browsing Bundles, along with locker delivery. It also gives you FREE access to thousands of books, DVDs, e-books, audiobooks, magazines, and newspapers, along with streaming videos, digital music, as well as exclusive online and in-person programming.
