“Sue’s vast understanding of technology has been invaluable to the success of all library projects,” said Nancy Adamczyk, Library Director during Carter’s tenure on the board. These projects included library cabling and computer software upgrades. As a Trustee she assisted staff as they developed the policies and procedures these changes required for implementation. Sue’s technology insight and vision also led to the development of the Library’s website and the digitalization of the Madison Eagle, a resource that local history researchers have found extremely useful as they delve into Madison’s past.
