Audit: Librarian edited receipts to hide purchases

MALVERN, Iowa (AP) — Auditors say a library director in a southwestern Iowa town repeatedly billed the city for improper purchases and altered receipts to cover up the practice.

An investigation released Friday by State Auditor Mary Mosiman found that former Malvern library director Stacey Buick misspent thousands of dollars.

Auditors say Buick billed the city for personal items like video games, groceries, and party decorations. A $1,200 home theatre system, a camera, a coffee machine, a window air conditioning unit and TracPhones were among the items flagged.

Auditors found that many receipts submitted to the city were altered with correction fluid or by cutting and pasting over the original descriptions of items. An envelope discovered in Buick's office contained the original receipts.

Buick resigned last year. There was no phone listing for her.
