Ex-Iowa library director faces felony charges over $23,000 in improper payments

The former library director in Malvern, Iowa, has been charged with ongoing criminal conduct and theft following a state investigation that found nearly $33,000 of improper and unsupported payments.

The investigation involved claims submitted by former Library Director Stacey Buick. Both charges are felonies.


The report says original receipts indicate that instead of library supplies, software and other items, Buick bought such things as an iPod Touch and TracPhones. A window air-conditioner, coffee machine, space-saving cubes, Easter basket supplies and candy, hooded sweatshirt, graduation decorations, laundry detergent, stain remover, video games and soft drinks were other items flagged.
