Did Someone Say Dress Code?


women at desk, card catalog and shelves, Digital ID 100965, New York Public LibraryThe Tottenville Branch–From NYPL Digital Gallery-No date given.

The branch was renovated in 1993 and has new shelving, but the pattern of the shelving is the same. The chandeliers were gone the first time I clustered at Tottenville in the mid-1980s, replaced by ugly fluorescent lighting. Chandeliers were designed for the renovation. The designers worked from old photos. The circ desk has the same horseshoe shape, but it is in a different position. The front door is to the left of the picture.

My first Library

Oh does that picture of the inside of the library look familiar! I'm still connected with libraries -- on Library Commission and Friends of the Library of where I live now. You may have my TV any day but n*o*t my library card. Margie of 667 Rockaway Street (which might even count as historical)
