The six figure expenditure to provide library services for Sydenham residents may be exorbitant or it may be a bargain. Are we paying one dollar or a hundred dollars to provide someone with a book or a movie to enjoy?
Until someone provides us with some data as to how many citizens use the service and the number of “transactions” taking place yearly it is difficult to decide. If such statistics are recorded they should be included in any debate on this issue. If not available, then a mistake was made when the 10 year contract was signed.
