The new executive director of the Rockford Public Library is just a week into the job, but she's already got a major project ahead of her.
Lynn Stainbrook previously led the Brown County Library in Green Bay, Wisconsin. There will be plenty of decisions to make in Rockford. The main library sits on the site of a former gas plant. Coal tar was stored underground. Over time, it seeped into the soil. ComEd is in charge of contamination removal.
But you can't just move a library without some planning.
