On August 14, 2018, WKYT reported that Friends of the Madison County Public Library was, or may continue to be, a subject of a material diversion of assets in an article titled, "Volunteer accused of stealing over $18,000 from nonprofit supporting library." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see the WKYT article.
