Carol Stream residents who want to share their photos for possible inclusion in a book chronicling the village's history are invited to an event from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at village hall, 500 N. Gary Ave.
The project, coordinated by the Carol Stream Historical Society, has been in the works for nearly a year. The society already has accumulated a collection of photos working with agencies such as the library, fire district and schools.
The book will be mostly photos, featuring images of every aspect of village life, including schools, parties, sports, clubs and more.
Rick Gieser, a member of the historical society, is reaching out to the actual Carol Stream -- who the town is named after -- to write the book's forward.
"We thought this was the time to enlist the help of residents, people who lived here and spent their lives here. We know they have great photos," Gieser said. "We've seen them. Some of us are in them. This is a book for the residents, past and present."
