Announcing the First STL Meeting of 2013

Now that we have turned over the calendar to begin a new year, it is time to focus our attention more clearly on the consolidated election in April in which five trustee positions on the Carol Stream Public Library Board will be filled.  Readers who have looked over the information and reviewed the media resources on this web site are fully aware of the destructive changes to our library that have been done by a new majority of trustees on the Board, and we are now gearing up for an important political fight to elect new trustees who will restore integrity and professionalism to Board proceedings.

As we announced in December, we are very pleased to announce that the STL Committee has selected a full slate of candidates for the upcoming consolidated election next April. The five candidates are active library users who are extremely knowledgeable about the key issues that face our library, and the committee has pledged to support their efforts in any way that they can. Jim Bailey is an experienced current trustee who has agreed to seek another term on the Board, and he will be joined on the slate by Bonita Berryman-Gilliam, Patricia Johnson, Edward Jourdan, and Nadia Sheikh. Information about some of the candidates and their views on library issues has already been posted in the “Meet the Candidates” section of this web site, and more information will be posted in the weeks ahead.

If you would like to join us to learn more about our efforts, the next meeting of the Support the Library organization will be held this coming Tuesday.  Here are the meeting details: 

Date: Tuesday, January 8

Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Heritage Presbyterian Church

Address: 965 Kuhn Road, Carol Stream
