Library Board has busy annual meeting

Staff Writer

Besides approving a $145,800 operating and maintenance budget for 1998 the Andrew Carnegie Free Library Board made many decisions during its annual meeting last week.

First motion of order for the Life Trustees was to appoint a new trustee to fill the spot left by the resignation of Robert Valeriano. The trustees voted to appoint John Nolte, owner of Nolte Business Services, Inc., Carnegie, to the position.

"My goal is to strengthen the overall financial position of the library via the contacts I have established and aid in the administration of funds, operating environment and helping to define the path for the next century of service to the community," Nolte wrote in his letter of intent to the Library Board.

The Board then voted to accept a resignation from Life Trustee Dan Duvall and start the search for a new replacement.

Officers for the upcoming year were also voted on.

The elected officers are president, Betsy Martin; vice president, Jean Leipold; secretary, Glenn Walsh and treasurer, John Nolte.
