What is the most important issue facing the Barrington Public Library District?

Why did the majority of the Library Board decide to cease negotiations to sell its property?

What are our findings from the Lake Zurich Road Realignment Proposal?

We endorse all three [Carrie Carr, Barbara Pintozzi and Carolyn Welch Clifford] for re-election. They’ve helped oversee the continued successful evolution of the library and participated in the board’s strong hire of Jesse Henning, the library’s widely regarded executive director. Each of the three clearly possesses a love of the library and a well-conceived vision of its future. It would be a shame to lose all of that.
