The headquarters of the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library are located at the Monett Branch Library. Barry and Lawrence Counties were the first two Missouri library cooperatives to form a consolidated library district under the state statute that officially authorized such in 1972. On July 18, 1973, the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library District was created as a new governmental unit. Tax dollars from the two counties are the primary source of income.
