Carmen Patlan, the executive director for the Highwood Public Library, came into the job last year with a wealth of experience.

While working for the Waukegan Public Library, Patlan and her team applied for and won the Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS) National Gold Medal, presented to them by First Lady Michelle Obama in 2014.
