New numbers on library outsourcing not so rosy

"The annual projected savings Osceola County government could realize by outsourcing management of the Osceola Library System to a private company has been cut by more than two-thirds, according to information provided at the Library Advisory Board meeting Wednesday.
Deputy County Manager Beth Knight reported that the initial projection of $2.5 million in annual savings the county could realize by outsourcing library management to Maryland-based Library Systems & Services. has been cut to $800,000 after further study, with the projected savings over a five-year contract about $4 million instead of $12.5 million."
