State Education Department
Oversight of Funds Provided to the Queens Borough Public Library and the Brooklyn Public Library: (Follow-Up Review) The State Education Department may provide funding to libraries with educational or cultural value. In our prior audit reports 97-N-12, and 97-N-11, we examined the Department's oversight of the funding provided to the Queens Borough Public Library and the Brooklyn Public Library. We found that the Department did not monitor the use of State funds by the two Libraries . We recommended that the Department review the Libraries' use of State funds to ensure that the funds were used as intended. In our follow-up review, we found that the Department has taken steps to initiate such monitoring.
