Libraries in Four Boroughs Plan to Unify Some Tasks

“For two years, New York’s three separate library systems have been working on a plan to offer a single, seamless library account for all New Yorkers that would unify checkouts, returns, deliveries and even late fees for the New York, Brooklyn and Queens public libraries.

Now, two of the libraries are taking a significant step forward, laying the groundwork for patrons to drop off books at any branch in at least four boroughs, if not citywide. By May, the New York Public Library—which serves Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island—will consolidate operations with the Brooklyn Public Library at the New York library’s book-processing center in Long Island City, Queens. The move will save the two systems about $3.5 million per year combined, the libraries said.”
