In recognition of the fact that their young members struggle to afford an appropriate outfit, the New York Public Library is lending a helping hand.

The library is lending out essential interview attire - ties, briefcases and handbags - in a bid to help job applicants look smart and hopefully land the job.

Adults and teenagers who are members of the library can borrow the items for three weeks, as long as they don’t have outstanding fines of $15 or more on their library cards.
This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

Did they clean it every time someone returns a suit?
