Reminder: The Barrie Public Libary is offering Curbside Pickup during the lockdown!

safe and easy

With everyone stuck inside for the month (and hopefully not any longer), you are probably looking for something to help pass the time. Well, instead of twiddling your thumbs, why not pick up a free book, movie, or video game from the Barrie Public Library?

Along with their extensive Digital Library Academy, you can still borrow all the content you desire thanks to curbside pickup introduced last year. Want to have a movie night? Get lost in a new book? Put your thumbs to the test with a new video game? Getting all that (and more) from The Barrie Public Library is just a few clicks away. Search through their collection, check availability, and put it on hold. You will then be notified when your item is ready for pick-up!

Getting a library card (now completely digital) also couldn’t be easier. If you are a resident of Barrie, Oro-Medonte, Orillia, or Midland, Work or Study in Barrie, or own property or a business in Barrie, you can instantly apply and start borrowing books online.

What are you waiting for? Stop being bored and start reading, watching, and playing!
