We've saved taxpayer's money
When Suffolk County Council was running the library service, the budget was £8.9m. When Suffolk Libraries took over the library service, the budget was £8.1m and we have seen gradual reductions over the past ten years with council funding for 2021/22 at just under £6m. Based on the original cost of the library service, the new model has saved the council £25.6m over a ten-year period.
