Welcome to Barclay Public Library

Our new library catalog app is here! Download it by searching for “Share Mobile App” in your app store. Please come into the library or call us at 217-672-3621 if you need help installing or navigating the new app.

Masks are required for all people over the age of 2 at this time.

We have a NEW database! Try out Reference Solutions. Great for finding out where people live (even if they have recently moved), their buying habits, insider information on businesses, and making marketing lists according to buying habits. Contact the library for training if you need it.

Do you live in Harristown and want to become more involved with the library? The Harristown Public Library District (which contracts with Barclay Library for services) is looking for 1 more Library Board of Trustees. This is a minimum commitment position with the board meeting for approximately a half hour 5 times a year. Please email director@barclay.lib.il.us if you are interested.
