Yesterday I mentioned that the New York City public libraries were not open as much as libraries in the suburbs. Here are two examples I just looked up:
In nearby Montclair, NJ, the library is open till 8:00 on school nights. And it's open on Sunday.
In nearby Scarsdale, NY. the library is open till 9:00 on school nights. And it's open on Sunday.
My neighborhood branch in the city stays open till 7:00 only two nights a week. And it's not open on Sunday.
City kids, living in apartments, wouldn't like to go study and see their friends and look at books and magazines at a library in the evening like the kids in the suburbs can?
