The Public Library has been in front of a ton of initiatives this summer. First culture pass, and now the Riverside Library branch will be renting out work attire for New Yorkers with job interviews.
The library has always been so much more than books but now, the New York Public Library System’s Riverside branch on the Upper West Side has taken rentals even further, unveiling a new collection of ties, briefcases and handbags, which library cardholders can take out for occasions like job interviews and events that require a bit more formality.
The accessories are a part of the library’s Grow Up initiative, a lending program that’s funded by the NYPL’s Innovation Project. Any NYPL library member can check out a sartorial piece so long as they have less than $15 in fees on their account.
