The annual giant Friends of the Barrington Library booksale was a great success this past weekend.  The sale brought in more than $7,000! The proceeds will be used to purchase museum passes, library programs, recorded books, teen materials, and many other items that the Friends purchase for the library each year.

Our sincere appreciation goes to the members of the Friends and many library staff who put real effort into making this sale a success!
