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. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
