County Library System Could Go To Outside Contractor

In response to a question from a citien, it was revealed that Sarasota County is considering contracting the management of the library system to an outside contractor as a means of dealing with budget shortfalls. The hours may also be reduced from 132 hours a week to 122 hours, said Sarabeth Kalijian, general manager of the County Library system.

County Administrator Jim Ley said the County will always own its libraries, but an outside contractor might provide the best services for the best prices, he added.
