Meet Our New Director

Kate Buckson joins the St. Charles Public Library District


Please join us in welcoming our new Library Director, Kate Buckson!

“St. Charles has a wonderful new building and a fantastic staff,” Buckson said. “I look forward to building strong and rewarding relationships with the staff, board and throughout the community.”  

Buckson comes to us with a 15-year career in libraries, which began at the Westmont Public Library. For the past seven years, she served as the executive director of the La Grange Park Public Library District and is eager to apply her skills and experience at a larger library. Buckson holds a Master of Library and Information Science degree from Wayne State University, along with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Northern Illinois University. She was appointed to Trustee of the Big Rock Township earlier this year.

Stay tuned for updates on the date for our upcoming open house.
