Need a tie or purse for a job interview?

The Riverside branch of the New York Public Library has created a "Grown Up Work Fashion Library" where folks of any age can check out a necktie or briefcase or purse for three weeks, provided they don't have any library card fines greater than $15.

The initiative began when a librarian teaching a class about "finding a job" told her students not to wear a backpack to a job interview. They were all very surprised, and said they did not have "any nicer stuff." The goal of the Grown Up Work Fashion Library is to help anyone with limited resources get accessories for interviews, graduations or other "business-like occasions.."
