This library loans out ties and handbags so those with limited resources can go to job interviews

The New York Public Library will lend neckties and bags to help any cardholder with job hunting.

(CNN)For a young person, going to a job interview can be expensive. You need nice clothes and a case or handbag to hold your resume and other documents.

But if you live in New York, there's help. The New York Public Library is making sure you dress to impress in all your interviews -- as long as you don't have any library card fines greater than $15.
The NYPL's Riverside Library has rolled out a "Grow Up Work Fashion Library," which lends out neckties, handbags and briefcases to responsible patrons.
    The goal is to help anyone with limited resources to get clothing and accessories for interviews, graduations and other "business-like occasions."

    How it started

    The idea was born last year when Michelle Lee, a young adult librarian at the Riverside branch, was helping students prepare for college interviews and part-time jobs.
