Excerpt: After a nationwide search, the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library Board ultimately found that the person with the best qualifications to lead the beleaguered system was right here at home.
The Library Board voted 7-0 Thursday night to appoint Jackie Nytes, a Democrat on the City-County Council, as its new chief executive. Nytes is also executive director of Mapleton-Fall Creek Development Corp. and former chief financial officer and associate director of management services for the library system. [Emphasis added.]
"I'm really honored," Nytes said after learning the vote was unanimous. "I'm really excited there is that kind of consensus."
Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard issued a news release Thursday night praising the appointment of Nytes and "her dedication to public service and commitment to improving our community."
