Talk of the Sound has learned that Operations Manager Anthony Maraglino has been "unexpectedly resigned" by the New Rochelle Public Library. His last day was Friday.
Maraglino's departure comes in the wake of the recent disclosure of financial mismanagement at the library, first reported by Talk of the Sound. Library officials are still not entirely sure what happened and continue to investigate but have acknowledged that several hundred thousand dollars thought to be in the library's fund balance is not there. They have described the problem as an error in calculation and provided assurances that no money was stolen. Board members have been somewhat mystified about the source of the problem because as recently as June 9th, the library director Thomas Geoffino had reported to the board that the library spending was under budget, having expended 81% of its 2010-11 budget with 92% of the fiscal year lapsed.
