Library Newsletters

We make it easy for you to stay up-to-date on events, programs, and services at the Barrington Area Library. Read on and sign up for our e-newsletter blasts and quarterly newsletter.

Weekly e-news blast - The library sends out a weekly e-mail news blast with the latest information about our programs and services. It's a convenient way to stay up-to-date and find out about what's new and exciting.

Kids' e-mail blast - Once a month, receive an e-mail full of workshops, story times, and entertainment programs, just for children and families.

Business e-blast - Receive a monthly e-mail with upcoming programs for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and job seekers.

You may choose to receive our quarterly Check It Out newsletter in several ways:

1) Via e-mail in a very readable, interactive flipbook format (See a sample below)

2) Via postal service

To choose the way you want to receive our newsletter, fill in this online form:

If requesting the e-mail newsletter, you need only fill in your name and e-mail address. If requesting postal delivery, you need only fill in your name and full mailing address (without e-mail). Rest assured, your mailing address and e-mail address will not be sold or given away to a third party. Even if you receive our weekly e-news, let us know if you would like to receive Check It Out as well.

We're pleased to give our community a variety of options in how they receive information from us, while also being more environmentally and fiscally sound.
