CARRIE CARR, a resident for over 21 years, was first elected to the Library Board in 2013. A former Barrington Junior Women’s Club President and Treasurer, Carrie has been instrumental in her role as Treasurer for the Library Board in streamlining the Library District’s financial reporting and implementing an improved investment portfolio. Her background with a large global consulting company in human resource development was key to the successful executive director search the Library Board conducted in 2017-2018. Carrie is particularly cognizant of the importance of keeping and recruiting talented library staff, and then supporting the staff’s ideas with the proper financial resources and a creative working environment that the Barrington Area Library has carefully curated.
BARBARA PINTOZZI has been a resident for over 25 years and has served on the Library Board since 2007. A life-long library fan and strong supporter of First Amendment rights, Barbara is an attorney, garden writer, environmentalist, and LGBTQ+ ally. She is “an inspirational believer in the role libraries play in the community,” and has demonstrated her ability to “think outside the box” in helping determine and support the direction the Barrington Area Library has taken in its facility and programming during the past 12 years. Barbara’s courage to stand by her convictions in the face of political pressure is inspirational.
