Teske is expected to fill the spot of Assistant Director Peggy Carlson, who will retire on June 27, although there likely will be overlap.
The Library Board is expected to take formal action at a special meeting set for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, at 127 James St.
Last week, the board voted to hire retired Elmhurst Library Director Marilyn Boria as interim library director. Boria was to work 12 to 15 hours a week at $60 an hour.
Teske's resignation will prompt a search for a new library director, Library Board President Esther Steel told the Chronicle.
Teske's annual salary is $110,233. Neither library officials nor the Chronicle story said why Teske was resigning or whether he was asked to resign. Teske recently took a seven-week leave of absence that was approved by the board.
