Childrens PC

Missouri State Library

Barton County Library has added one new Children's Early Literacy Computer per branch for a total of three new Children's Early Literacy Computers. These Early Literacy Computers were made possible through a grant provided by LSTA funds through the Missouri State Library in the amount of $7,153. We will be demonstrating these computers during the following times at all three branches:

Lamar Demonstration Times: 
Tuesday, July 28th at 10:00 am - Before The Closing of the Summer Reading Program

Golden City Demonstration Times:
Tuesday, July 22nd at 10:00 am - during the Children's Story Hour.

Liberal Demonstration Times:
Wednesday, July 29th at 10:00 am



Barton Countly Library would like to spotlight our children's story hour.  Story hour is a great opportunity for your child to have fun, sing, play games, listen to stories, and make crafts.  It's all free at Barton County Library.  


Each story hour has a different theme such as the jungle, oceans, or colors. 


Story Hour takes place at all of our branches.

  • Golden City: 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every Month at 10:30 am
  • Lamar: Every Wednesday at 10:00 am
  • Liberal: 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at 10:00am


The Barton County Library has a new e-Reader lending program. Our devices are pre-loaded with a selection of eBooks from bestsellers to inspirational fiction. Stop by the Lamar Library and check one out today. This program will be available at the branch libraries soon.
