Pros

We connect New Yorkers, from every walk of life, to everything from the latest hot novel to the proper social services office. Every day brings something new, and it's never boring. You work with some of the smartest, most creative, most dynamic people in the city, and have the chance to network with the people who run New York.

Cons

Every branch is short staffed and overworked. It sometimes feels like upper management is more concerned with their media presence and how things look, and less about the actual people on the ground who make the Library run.

Advice to Management

We cannot handle any more pilots, programs, or big ideas with the current number of staff in the branches.

    Pros

    you can read books for free if you don't have anything to do. You can make great friends there as well.

    Cons

    It can be very boring and the people you have to deal with can also be annoying if they don't follow instructions.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. Anything wrong that occurs isn't really your fault, it depends on where the library is located.
