New Library Cards!
September is National Library Card Signup Month and we’re celebrating by launching a brand new library card design! Our new cards are decked out with the library’s logo, tagline AND a key-tag to make carrying your card more convenient. Everyone can get in on the action by registering for a new library card or updating an old one.
New Techy Stuff
Barclay Mobile – Our new Library App is now ready! Search your app store for “Barclay Mobile” and install for easy access to our website, catalog, ebooks and more! Need some help? Bring your device into the library and we will get you set up!
WiFi Hotspots – The library now has 6 Wifi Hotspots with Sprint 4g LTE service to share with our customers! These nifty boxes will provide internet service for up to 10 devices at once! Ask about it for your next vacation or borrow as a temporary internet source when your home service is on the fritz.
Launchpads – What is a Launchpad you ask? It is an electronic tablet pre-loaded with stories and games designed with a simple, easy-to-use interface. No download time. No need for WiFi. Access is as simple as turning on each device – anytime, anywhere! Great for long trips!

If you or a loved one is physically unable to visit the library, Barclay Public Library has a service just for you! Our Homebound Delivery service is available to persons who are homebound due to age, illness, disability or other incapacitating circumstances on a temporary or permanent basis. A library staff member will deliver reading materials or movies to your home once per month. To be eligible, the person must also reside within the Barclay Public Library service area and have a library card in good standing. Call the library for more information 672-3621.
