Hit or Miss

A trip to the library

I finally got around to checking out the New York Public Library website (shame on Matt the former librarian) and discovered that due to budget cuts the libraries really aren’t open all that much. My nearest branch, for example, isn’t open at all on Saturdays or Sundays and only for a few hours during the week (during which I’m at work). I’m closer to some of the Brooklyn libraries than the Manhattan ones, but they don’t fare much better.

Fortunately, the Strand Annex is only 2 blocks north (with great hours to boot), but I hate the idea of paying for any book.
