    The City of Escondido approved the outsourcing of its library system to a private company Wednesday. 

    City councilmembers voted 3 to 2 in favor of the proposal to hire a company to manage the city's library services. 

    The decision is expected to save costs. The City Manager of Escondido says the savings may reach $400,000 a year. 

    Critics protested the move leading up to Wednesday's vote. They say library services should be managed by the city. Privatization will affect public services, opponents said.
