LITTLE ROCK – Nashville native
Nate Coulter was recently
selected by the Central Arkansas
Library System to become
its next Executive Director.
According to a press release
by CALS, Selection/Transition
Committee Chair Fred Ursery
said, “After a nation-wide
search, the Selection/Transition
Committee reviewed the
numerous applications for the
position, interviewed four of
the applicants, and presented
to the Board the two applicants
it felt were most qualified for the
position. The Board members
met the applicants at a public
reception and received a
number of comments from
the general public, library
patrons, and the staff. At our
December board meeting
the board members discussed
the applicants. The
board felt that both applicants
were highly qualified,
but after discussion agreed
upon Nate Coulter as the
successor to Dr. Bobby Roberts.”
Coulter responded with
the statement, in the press
release, “I am humbled and
honored by the Board’s decision,
particularly considering
the strength of other applicants.
Thanks to the leadership
and vision of Bobby
Roberts and the hard work
of his staff and board, the
Central Arkansas Library
System has become a very
respected and cherished
part of our community. I’m
looking forward to the opportunity
to help lead CALS
to even greater heights.”
Roberts announced his
retirement in February 2015,
but plans to work through
March 4, 2016, as a transition
period.

Rock. He is a graduate of
