#N12BK: Library rents out clothing for job interviews
A New York City library branch is renting out more than just books.
The New York Public Library's Riverside branch on the Upper West Side is loaning out neck ties and handbags for job interviews.
A new collection of ties, briefcases and handbags are available for cardholders to take out for occasions like interviews, weddings, and other events, officials say.
The program is only active at the one location.
The apparel rentals are part of the NYPL's 'Grow Up initiative,' a lending program.
Any NYPL library member can check out apparel at the location's second floor information desk as long as they have less than $15 in fees on their account.
