NYPL, again

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


I came back today.

All of the books had been returned to the Annex.
