New Upland library management exemplifies benefits of outsourcing

from the Press-Enterprise

“If you’ve visited the Upland Public Library in the past month, you may have noticed the longer hours and expanded collections. In addition to all these enhancements, the library will actually cost Upland residents less than it did in years past. That is because after years of consideration by local officials, a private company has taken over the management of the city library.”
