Linda J. Mielke, director of the Carroll County Public Library for 11 years, has accepted a job leading a Midwestern library system that has four times as many branches and serves more than 800,000 residents. Mielke, 57, announced her resignation, effective in mid-August, at a board meeting last night. In September, she will become chief executive officer of the Indianapolis-Marion County libraries in Indiana, a system with a central library, 22 branches and three bookmobiles. "Without a doubt, I have regrets about leaving Carroll County," Mielke said.

When an inventory at Carroll County's busiest library last year showed more than $23,000 in missing items, the director of the five-branch system ordered theft-deterrent equipment. In the past six months, the equipment has worked so well at the Westminster branch that she would like to install similar devices throughout the system. "We had 1,500 items gone missing, and that was just at Westminster," said Linda Mielke, the county's library director. "I knew we had a serious problem." The stolen items included books, CDs, DVDs, videotapes and other materials, she said.
