As winter sets in and the city gets ready for a winter storm, some of the most essential outdoor activities in the city are being made easier for residents to get around.
In one of the biggest shifts in New York City’s urban infrastructure since the 2010 Superstorm Sandy, the New York Public Library and a number of other public libraries across the city will be offering daily, seasonal and daily-only cleaning and sweeping programs for the first time.
These sweeping programs will run every day beginning at 7 a.m. and will run until 1 p.m., with the first sweep scheduled at 5 p.k. for a total of 20 minutes of service.
This will be the first year of the new program, which will start at 8 a.l.m, and will be available throughout the week beginning Sunday, February 14.
The library will offer sweeping services for children, adults, seniors and the homeless, and it will also be offering free daily morning and evening cleaning and sweepings for people who want to get in on the cleaning action.
The library’s website states that all of its sweepings will be free, but the program is available for rent.
This means that those who don’t have a library card can still rent out the cleaning and cleaning service and those who are currently using the library will be able to pay.
The program, however, comes with a cost, and those that sign up for the free service will pay $10.99 per hour and those with library cards will pay the same price.
The average cost per hour is $6.57, according to the library.
The move is another in a long line of changes to New York’s public library system.
In May of 2018, New York announced it was scrapping its $5.99 monthly membership fee and allowing its patrons to use debit or credit cards, including Apple Pay and Google Wallet.
However, those who used the service to pay for books or library supplies could still get a refund after 30 days, as long as they paid their library card within 90 days of the end of the month.
As the city’s public libraries struggle to stay afloat and the financial strain on the city continues, the idea of offering free cleaning and sweeps to anyone who wants to get out and get to the park has come to the forefront of the city.
New York is the only city in the United States to have its public libraries offer free cleaning to anyone, but it has a long way to go before that happens.
