Outside Book Drop Locked During Open Hours

Beginning in February, we made the decision to keep the
outside book drop locked while the library is open. The book drop is emptied when the library opens each day. Before this change, if an item was returned after we had already emptied the book drop, it would not get checked in until the next business day, potentially resulting in late fees. We now ask that all items being returned while we are open are brought into the building. Items can be
returned on either floor; there is a book return slot in
both the children’s circulation desk and the main
circulation desk.

Overdrive/Libby Hold Redelivery Update

As of March 3, when a hold becomes available for you on Overdrive or Libby they will no longer download
automatically. Patrons will get a notification that a hold is ready for them, and you must select an option manually. You will have the three choices: borrow the hold, select “deliver later,” which will pass the item to the next person on the list while keeping you at the front of the wait list, or to remove the hold. For any questions regarding this new feature please contact Joe, Adult & Technical Services Librarian,
at (978) 355-2533 x102 or jhood@barrelibrary.org.

Libby/Overdrive Update

Your privacy is important. 

That's why, starting on Tuesday, January 21, you will need to enter your CWMARS library card number AND your account password/pin when you log into the Libby and Overdrive apps. 

If you don't know your account password, you can reset it under your account settings, or you can ask a library staff member to assist you. We welcome patrons to stop by the library or give us a call at (978) 355-2533 if you have questions or need help resetting your password/pin.
