About this Article

The Carol Stream Public Library recently turned 50, but it's likely the past six months have been among its most tumultuous. In that time, the sharply divided library board of trustees fired its director, put a 7.5-acre vacant piece of land once intended for a new library on the market, and censured a longtime trustee. It's quite a time for Susan Westgate to start her new job.
