County library system receives clean audits
March 12, 2013
Auditors uncovered no problems in finances or procedures at the King County Library System, according to recent reports from state Auditor Brian Sonntag’s office.
The thumbs-up from auditors came after routine financial check-ups conducted by the state.
State auditors examined how the library system handles procurement and complies with the state Open Public Meetings Act.
The team described the mechanisms in place to protect public assets as adequate, and said the district complied with internal procedures, as well as state laws and regulations.
Auditors examined documents from the library system for 2011.
The library system includes 46 branches from Skykomish to Vashon Island. The district encompasses more than 1,200 employees and a $100 million budget.
