Inside Edition takes on the library

Lisa M. submitted this clip from Inside Edition about the director's salary at the New York City Public Library. Both a written article and the clip from the show are at this URL. What do you think about tabloid TV's take on library salaries?


Thanks Lisa!

I think it's going to be pretty damn hard to explain a salary like that to a general public who, for the most part, thinks librarians just sit behind a desk and shush people all day long.

Personally, I think that salary is far too exorbitant for the position, even though I'm sure the amount of work is immense. If the system is struggling and having to cut services, then perhaps excessive salaries should be cut before library jobs and services. Even in NYC, I doubt cost of living is that high.
