IMPORTANT NOTICE: Barclay Public Library will be closed from Monday, March 16, 2020 until Wednesday, April 8, 2020 in an effort to flatten the curve and do our part in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus. All programs falling in March and April will be rescheduled. Please do not worry about returning items at this time. No late fees will be assessed during the closure. If you have materials on hold or were expecting items soon, we will try to extend the loan period and still fulfill your request. Thank you for your understanding as we do our part to protect you and your loved ones at this difficult time.
Even though we are closed, you can still use the library! Read or listen to books by using our online services such as Library on the Go (Libby app), Hoopla, or Cloud Library. You can watch movies on Hoopla and Kanopy. Click on the links below or visit your app store to download the apps to read, watch or listen on the go.
