City-County Councilor Jackie Nytes was chosen as the next CEO of the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library on Thursday night by the system's board of trustees.

Nytes, a former library executive, is expected to succeed Laura Bramble, who has been CEO since early 2007. Terms of Nytes' employment, including the starting date, still need to be finalized. The board voted 7-0 for her approval.

Nytes is executive director of the Mapleton Fall Creek Development Corp. and City-County Councilor in District 9. No stranger to the local library, she was the system's associate director of management services in the 1990s and served as chief financial officer from 1998 to 2001.

She also was director of Carmel-Clay Public Library from 1981 to 1988.

Nytes was selected from an initial list of 22 candidates that was whittled down to seven earlier this year and to two in late August.

Tom Sloan, associate executive director of Reaching Across Illinois Library System in suburban Chicago Burr Ridge, was the remaining finalist for the position.

Bradbury Associates Inc. of Indianapolis conducted the national job search.

Bramble announced plans in May to retire by the end of the year. She has been in the library industry for 41 years. Her most recent annual salary was $114,000.

Nytes will become the library system's 14th director since 1873. The system operates 23 branches and has a annual budget of more than $38 million. More than 5 million patrons visit the local libraries each year.

  1. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
