Open Classroom Series Continues at Barrington Library
The second annual Open Classroom Series continues at Barrington Public Library with lectures from university professors about the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. The series runs Thursdays at 7 PM through April 11, 2013.
Each week a visiting professor lectures for 45 minutes to an hour with additional time for questions and answers. Explore the articles and amendments with the guidance of scholars and find out what they mean in today’s society and for our current government.
Upcoming speakers include professors Diana Hassell of Roger Williams University, Michael Vorenberg of Brown University and June Speakman also of Roger Williams University. Lectures include time for Q & A. Be sure to join us on March 28th for a lecture on State's Rights: How the 10th Amendment Has Been Interpreted, April 4th for the topic of Slavery & Citizenship and again on April 11th for the topic of The Right to Vote.

The library is recognized as one of the finest in Rhode Island with a mission to provide free, diverse and easily accessible materials, services and programs that educate, inform, enrich and entertain Barrington residents, according to Director Debbie Barchi. It is a member of the Ocean State Lending consortium of libraries, which share an online catalog. It offers databases that can be accessed online at the library or from a home or business. The library strives to serve all age groups and their special needs. One of its most popular adult programs is a film series in an auditorium that boasts state-of-the-art visual equipment, a wide screen and padded stadium seating. Meeting space is available for a small fee. The library offers copy machines and homedelivery of materials. Hundreds of story hours for children from babies to pre-teens draw thousands of participants each year. The picturesque two-story library occupies most of the square footage of the retrofitted and refurbished former high school next to the Town Hall.
