If you’ve been by the library recently, you probably noticed our new roof! The old roof was 19 years old and shingles were starting to go missing. Thankfully, we have a wonderful Board of Trustees who work hard to make improvements and repairs to the building before any major problems occur. We think the new shingles look fantastic!
New Puppet Packs
The library just added four NEW Puppet Packs!
Look for them in the children’s section:
- Pete The Cat
- Elephant & Piggie
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!
New Notary Service
Barclay Library now has two Notary Publics at your service! Just one more way we can help our community!
