Living Library

Communities are built upon the stories and experiences that their members share. During the month of February, the library would like to collect your stories. We'll be conducting very short (2 minutes or less) video and audio interviews throughout our community. The video and audio clips will be added to this page on the library's Web site. To be interviewed on a topic of your choice, please contact Liz Kirchhoff at or call 847-382-1300 X 3040.

Get to know your neighbors here in the Barrington area by listening to them share their stories in the short videos below. You'll be surprised, delighted, and very moved by what they have to say.
