It's quite a time for Susan Westgate to start her new job.

    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.
