As of March 18th the Barrhead & Neerlandia Public Libraries will be closed to the public until further notice. The staff of the Barrhead Library will still be at work Monday thru Friday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. beginning Wednesday, March 25th to assist our patrons via email & phone.

The building is closed to the public, however we will assist you in putting together 'take-out' packages of books or movies and arrange a pick-up time so you may continue to enjoy reading. Please contact the library at (780) 674-8519 or email our general account at during our new hours Monday - Friday from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m. beginning Wednesday, March 25th.

If you have library items in your possession you may return them to the outside slot at the library (left of the front entrance). All items currently checked-out have been automatically renewed to May 15th, 2020, meaning you do not have to worry about getting items back during this pandemic.

Remember, with your library membership you may download new books, audiobooks, movies, etc... using the Library's e-resources such as Overdrive & Hoopla here:

Please call the Library at (780) 674-8519 or email our general account at anytime if you have general questions or require assistance with your account/e-resources.
