Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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. I keep wondering why I keep hearing about this problem of corporations leaving America, and I never hear a reasonable proposal to lower corporate tax rates and raise personal rates on income from capital gains and dividends, especially for high earners. It is just too simple of a solution for Congress to embrace?

A casino with sports bar would be good.A Disney theater inside that shows movies and Broadway shows would work.Nashville Tennessee concert shops with indoor neon lights would be good.How about a theater that shows travel shows and theme parks. A train store would be good.How about a giant toy store with high tech video games.
