Support the Library

In light of recent changes on the Library Board of the Carol Stream Public Library that threaten the quality of library programs and services, this organization was formed to recruit and support individuals who are willing to volunteer their time and efforts to serve as trustees or in other capacities. We have named the group STL which stands for "Support the Library".


There are at least three main goals for this organization:
1. Recruit five (5) qualified candidates to run for Library trustee positions in April, 2013.
2. Raise funds to support the campaign efforts for the trustee candidates.
3. Build a dedicated team of volunteers to prepare and distribute campaign materials.

Time Frame:

Summer, 2012-- Create organization and recruit candidates and volunteers
Fall, 2012-- Candidates pick up packets of petitions to run for office
January, 2013-- Candidate petitions are filed
February, 2013-- Campaigning begins
April 9, 2013-- Consolidate Election
