If you are looking to get dressed up for a job interview, wedding, audition, graduation, prom, or other formal event, the Riverside Library can help.

With our NYPL Grow Up work accessories collection, you can now borrow:

Neckties and bowties

Tie box and ties


Adults and teens who have low fines (less than $15) or no fines on their library cards can borrow items for a one-time, three-week lending period.

We also have information sheets on job interview tips, free career resources and suggested books, and websites and organizations that can help with professional fashion advice and attire.

The New York Public Library Grow Up mini-lending library program is funded through the New York Public Library Innovation Project, which is made possible by a generous grant from The Charles H. Revson Foundation. Other donations came from Career Gear and private individuals.

For more information about the NYPL Grow Up work accessories lending library, stop by the Riverside Library at 127 Amsterdam Ave and 65th Street. Visit the second floor information desk, talk to a librarian, and check it out!  

The NYPL Grow Up program is no longer accepting material donations. If you would like to make a financial contribution to the library program, please visit our website and chose the Riverside Library in the donation drop-down menu.
