This Amazing Library Prepares its Community for Job Interviews

In an interesting move, the New York Public Library has taken to offering not only books but also professional attire to people, young and old, in search of jobs.

As it can be cost-prohibitive to purchase business-professional clothing prior to those gut-wrenching interrogatives we call “interviews,” this initiative should lend a helping hand to many residents of the NYC community on the market for a job.

The initiative is being funded by the New York Public Library Innovation Project, and is but one of many initiatives the organization has launched to provide accessible learning and professional services throughout NYC.

 

Here lies another example of libraries playing a vital role in their respective communities. In addition to curating and protecting the tomes of our history, libraries serve to empower and educate our citizens, with not only books, but also much, much more.
