  •  New Carol Stream Library Director Susan Westgate, whose first day was Monday, says she wants to change the negative perception some may have of the library.

    New library director begins work in Carol Stream Jan 28, 2013 12:00 AM
    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.

    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.”

    Five candidates slated by the Support the Library group will stay on the April 9 ballot in a contentious Carol Stream library board race, despite objections to their nominating petitions. The objections were filed by Elaine Wierdak, a former circulation desk clerk and coordinator at the library, who argued in a lawsuit that her employment was wrongfully terminated in April 2009.

    Carol Stream library picks new director Dec 27, 2012 12:00 AM
    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 Library puts Kuhn Road site on market Dec 13, 2012 12:00 AM
    If you're looking to purchase vacant land in Carol Stream and have $1.8 million, make your offer to the Carol Stream Public Library. The 7˝-acre property at 2N540 Kuhn Road — once earmarked for a new library — is now officially on the market, following the library board's 6-1 decision last month to sell the property.

    A For Sale sign could soon be going up at 480 N. Kuhn Road — a controversial 7 1/2-acre vacant piece of land owned by the Carol Stream Public Library. The library board voted 6-1 Monday to list the property with Wheaton-based Realty Executives, whose Realtors have previously estimated the land to be worth $1,897,000. The land was purchased by the library in 2003 with intentions of building a new library facility there, but voters rejected those plans in three separate referendums.

     
  • Realtors: Carol Stream library land worth more than appraisers say it isNov 12, 2012 12:00 AM
    The Carol Stream Public Library's 7.5-acre vacant piece of land on Kuhn Road may be worth more than double or triple the amount an appraiser determined last year, according to three Realtors who addressed the library board Monday. Last month the board directed Interim Library Director Marilyn Boria to contact Realtors to obtain the fair market value of the property at 480 N. Kuhn Road. It's the first step in a possible sale of the land, which was purchased by the library in 2003 to build a new library facility.

    Tempers, perhaps, have come to a simmer on the Carol Stream Library board, almost three months after the controversial firing of Library Director Ann Kennedy. The board had been expected to consider a resolution this week calling for the censure of Trustee Jim Bailey for statements he made at an Aug. 15 board meeting. But the consensus among all board members on Wednesday was to table the resolution indefinitely.

"It was the place to go," Pam Smith of Carol Stream said about the original library. "I remember it being very full. To a six or seven year old, it was just like magic."
