Libraries Transformation Programme

2. Internal Review

We have undertaken an Internal Review of the Library and Information Service in East Sussex to reduce running costs and ensure we are spending our limited resources wisely. The review included a reduction in management staff, changes to how we manage and buy stock, and a reduction in library opening hours. The internal review has saved £1.25million towards our overall savings target.
