The Remix: the official grand reopening celebration of the Barrington Area Library

Sunday, June 22, 2014: we invite you to experience The Remix, the official grand reopening celebration of the Barrington Area Library!

Join us at 1 p.m. for the ribbon cutting ceremony with our Board of Trustees, library administrative personnel, the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce, and elected officials from the Barrington area.

Then, you and your family can enjoy:

  • tours of the newly "remixed" Barrington Area Library, including the brand new Business & Technology Center, and the Youth Services department everyone is talking about;
  • a meet and greet with our furry "Read To Rover" friends - trained therapy dogs and their human companions;
  • live jazz from the Jazz For You combo;
  • delicious treats from Frantonio's, Wild Asparagus, Cooper's, Sergio's, Clarke's, and Heinen's;
  • souvenir photos from Photo Booth Express;
  • a surprise visit mid-afternoon from Gelato D'Oro - while supplies last;
  • free library tote bags and other giveaways - while supplies last.

We would be so honored if you would join us for this day of celebration. We are grateful for the support we receive from everyone in the Barrington area, and for your continued patience through 14 months of construction. This is your new community gathering space, so come over and make yourselves at home!
