MHLS strongly advises that all libraries have an independent review or audit done annually. The benefits of having an independent audit or review include:
For those libraries with annual receipts over $250,000 who are also registered as a charitable organization under NYS Executive Law Article 7A, you are required to have an independent audit. (For annual gross receipts between $100,000 and $250,000 a review is required.) For more information see the NYS Office of the Attorney General's web site.
Libraries should change audit firms every five years.
