“I grew up with a love for history. My grandmother was a history teacher. She would tell these wonderful stories that always intrigued me and brought history to life. It’s funny that when I started working in Barrington 220, I ended up at Hough, the oldest school in the district. Barrington is a place rich in history. You walk over to Evergreen Cemetery and see gravesites for Civil War soldiers. The Barrington White House was once used as a hospital for the World War I flu pandemic. A few years ago, I did my dissertation on the history and evolution of school libraries. Barrington 220 was one of the first school districts in Illinois to automate its library card catalogues. A lot has changed through the years, but the heart of the community remains the same. We pride ourselves in offering the best opportunities to our kids. I think the history that surrounds us only enriches the educational experience here.”- Dr. Mary Marks, Hough Teacher Librarian and Longtime Barrington Area Resident #Binspired #History #Barrington
