Other Info: The Barrhead Library started as a community library in December of 1950 with a $200 donation from the estate of homesteader Jack McKerracher and additional government grants. Over the years the Library has been moved to various locations, always on school grounds, in the town of Barrhead. It has been housed in a corner of a school, in a one-room and then a two-room school house and in the county office corner on the school grounds, until finally being moved into the large, specially designed setting where it is today. The library is unique in that it has always operated as a combined school and public facility. It serves both the town and county of Barrhead.
