 Digital Library Cards
Are you one of those people who never remember to bring your library card to the library?  You probably have your cell phone though don’t you?  Barclay Library recently installed new scanners that have the ability to scan a smart phone screen!  You can now load your library card into an app, such as CardStar or Key Ring and use your phone to check out library materials.  Ask any member of our library staff for assistance in setting up your digital card.


Homebound Delivery Service
If you or a loved one is physically unable to visit the library, Barclay Public Library has a service just for you!  Our Homebound Delivery service is available to persons who are homebound due to age, illness, disability or other incapacitating circumstances on a temporary or permanent basis.  A library staff member will deliver reading materials or movies to your home once per month.  To be eligible, the person must also reside within the Barclay Public Library service area and have a library card in good standing.  Call the library for more information 672-3621.
