    Libraries are supposed to be quiet places, but in Carol Stream, the local library is ground zero for one of the most contentious elections this year in DuPage County. Voters will get to choose from 10 candidates — running on two slates — for five positions. The outcome will determine the direction the library takes for the 39,000 residents it serves.

  • New library director begins work in Carol Stream Jan 28, 2013 5:44 PM
    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.

     
  • Carol Stream library board censures trustee Jan 17, 2013 6:40 AM
    With a hotly contested election just months away, the fractured Carol Stream Public Library board censured one of its members Wednesday — perhaps triggered by statements he made in a Daily Herald article. In the Jan. 9 article, Trustee Jim Bailey called former library employee Elaine Wierdak — the longtime girlfriend of Trustee Dominick Jeffrey -- “a patsy.”

  • 5 Carol Stream library candidates stay on ballot Jan 8, 2013 5:06 PM

  • Carol Stream library picks new director Dec 27, 2012 5:56 PM
    A Glenbard North High School graduate who grew up near Carol Stream will become the new director of the Carol Stream Public Library, officials announced Thursday. Susan Westgate, 52, the current assistant director of the Bartlett Public Library, will begin her new role in Carol Stream Jan. 28, 2013. In job interviews with the library board and management, she says both groups expressed their desire for her to help change the negative perception some in the community may have of the library. "They just want to kind of change when people say, Carol Stream Public Library' — they're gonna have a good feeling about it and not be thinking about the things they read in the paper."

     
  • Carol Stream pedestrian bridge to reopen soon Dec 21, 2012 8:13 AM
    A 34-year-old pedestrian bridge connecting the Carol Stream Public Library with Armstrong Park is undergoing repairs and should be open after the new year, officials said.
