To make a copy in the new NYPL system, you first have to show your books
to a librarian. There's only one, so you have to stand in line for half an
hour. Then, you have to wait on line at copy services, and this takes
another half hour.
Then you are privileged to pay 25 cents per page.
Then you have to wait another half hour until they copy it.
I didn't have this kind of time to copy my books from the Annex--until
today. I told the NYPL: Please, please, please, don't return my books to
the Annex! I still want my books! Don't return them to the Annex! DON"T
RETURN THEM TO THE ANNEX!!
I came back today.
All of the books had been returned to the Annex.
