Barclay Public Library
"A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life." - Henry Ward Beecher
We couldn't agree more. Come visit your local library. A quiet place to study, relax, work or simply escape in a good book. It's fun... the old fashioned way!
Barclay Public Library is Harristown's local library, located in Warrensburg, just a few miles away. Through the Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS) residents of Harristown are able to check out materials from the Illiopolis/Niantic Public Library, located in Illiopolis and the Decatur Public Library, located in downtown Decatur.
You’ve probably heard about Barclay’s Coffee Club, which meets every Wednesday at 9:30 am. This is an open invitation for anyone from the community to stop by the library for good coffee, company and conversation!
Book Discussion Groups
1st Wednesday at 10:30 am

Joining a Book Club is a great way to get out of a reading rut and make new friends at the same time! Ask about how to join at the Service Desk.
