Both the Glocester Manton Library and the Harmony Library have a long history of service to the town.
The Glocester Manton Library, opened in 1847 once shared its space with the Glocester Police Department and Town Hall. It is now fully renovated with state-of-the-art technology services and a variety of books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs, and public programs.
The Harmony Library began as a few small shelves in the Harmony Fire Station on Route 44, later crossed the street to space in the former Adah Hawkins School, and in ---, the library moved next door to a new building. Today, the Harmony Library's services equals or exceeds library services offered by larger libraries, due to generous donations by the Champlins Foundation, the Friends of the Harmony Library, and generous Glocester residents..
