Teske could not be reached for comment Friday.

Teske had been on a full-time and then part-time medical leave for much of November and December, as he underwent treatment for what he said was anxiety and depression. He said in January that moving down to assistant fit in better with his recovery. His appointment to assistant was opposed by one board member, Susan Shivers, who said the library already had assistant director Peggy Carlson, who could manage the library while a new director was found. Carlson did so during Teske's leave.

The rest of the board chose instead to keep Teske on and to hire an interim director, because Carlson is retiring at the end of June.

The library has begun searching for a new director.

The library hired Teske in 2006 and promoted him to director in 2008.
