The Barrington Area Library is proud to host a portion of the Barrington Area United Way's Round Up public art exhibit for the second time. The colorfully painted horses are now grazing at various locations throughout Barrington and four horses have found a temporary stable at the library. Look for tabletop ponies in our Adult Services, Youth Services and Circulation departments, with a larger horse in the courtyard windows of our atrium. The art exhibit lasts throughout the summer, and the horses will be available for purchase at an auction later in the year. See for more information.
