Wandsworth opens the competition to save London's libraries (UK)

Maintaining a high quality network of libraries is a challenge for local authorities in these tough times. As budgets are cut we must be more inventive and prepared to take bold steps to protect this vital local service. In Wandsworth our big idea is to look at competitively tendering our library and heritage service. We believe a new and competitive market of library service providers has emerged with the potential to improve delivery and reduce costs. If another organisation can do a better job, we will open the door - Jonathan Cook in The Guardian
