Robert's family moved back to Barrington when he was a baby and he attended all 8 years of elementary school in the now-closed old school/town office building.  A few months after graduating from Spaulding High, he enlisted in the US Army for three years. After a 2 year break he re-enlisted and retired after a 21 year career. While on active duty he completed an AS and BS degree in Business. After retirement from the Army he completed his Master's degree. He then started a second career as a self employed insurance broker.  After spending 14 years living in Utah where he stills owns a home, he returned to Barrington to help care for his parents and to be closer to his 4 children and now 5 grandchildren. He has always been an avid reader and collector of books and does not believe that technology will totally replace libraries or independent book stores. One of his hobbies is collecting and researching US and world paper money and the financial documents relating to the funding of the Civil War and World War II.

The growth and health of the library is important to Traci hence the reason she agreed to Chair the Barrington Library Foundation. This team of dedicated volunteers fundraises to help the library establish a secure future in a new building that can accommodate the needs of a growing community. She believes access to books, research materials, news archives, computers, programs and knowledgeable librarians is critical to the success of students and adults looking to expand their horizons, engage with others and enrich their lives.
