Here to Help in the Library

Over the first six weeks of school, I have had the pleasure of visiting all of our school libraries. Although the physical spaces look different and the students span from preschool to twelfth grade, one thing remains the same, all of our library staff is focused on providing excellent resources to the school community. Students and teachers visit this space not only for physical books, but to gain knowledge of the many electronic resources, databases, and digital texts available.

Whether you are a first-time user of the Barrington 220 library system or someone who has partnered numerous times with library staff, we are happy to help! Did you know the following about your school libraries?

  • Kindles are available for checkout in all our buildings. Through the generous donation of the friends of the library, our K–5 buildings are equipped with at least 30 Kindle devices.
  • A wealth of databases and other online tools are accessible to enhance the learning experience.
  • Librarians are available to help your curate resources, plan a research project, team teach, or work with you on almost any task that improves the learning experience for the students in your classroom.
  • We have a wide range of ebook and audio book options available.
If you are looking for a way to get started with ebooks, check out this short video on OverDrive, one of our ebook resources.
