The New York Public Library has one of the most diverse collections in the nation, and its branches, which are spread across the state, are diverse, too.
But the public library’s public-service division, which runs the library system, says the public-library branch in the city of Madison is a “small, liberal” institution that “does not reflect the diverse, diverse community in our region.”
This is a clear distinction, said David Henningsen, the deputy library director, and a branch with an African-American community was never going to reflect the diversity of the city.
Madison Public Library staff member Michael T. Nisbet, a former Madison Public library director and now the library’s general manager, said that the branch in Madison was not a “liberal” branch, but a branch that was “a little more progressive than our neighborhood.”
“We have the most liberal collection, but it is a small liberal library,” he said.
The library has the largest library in the state.
Its branches in Madison and New York City account for one in three of the library systems public-access libraries.
Public-library branches in New York and Madison have been described as “conservative” by some.
Niles, a Republican, said the branch he attended was a liberal one.
The branch in Manhattan is a conservative branch.
“There are a lot of conservatives, but the ones I can’t name off the top of my head are just the ones that I have known personally,” he told Breitbart News.
“The ones I have never met are the ones who are more liberal.”
The branch Niles attended, located in Midtown Manhattan, is also the only branch in a small, liberal city.
“We do have a few liberal branches, and the branch I went to was one of those,” Niles said.
“But overall, I’m a liberal.”
Hennesensen said the public libraries of the state are “a mix of liberal and conservative,” and that the “core values” of the branch are “progressive and pro-business.”
“I think there is a lot more liberal diversity at these branches than there are in Madison,” he added.
“I know people that work at these libraries and they say they feel like the branch is more progressive.
I’ve never met one of them who was a conservative.”
According to the New York State Library Board, the branch located in the Bronx, where the public branches in Manhattan are located, has a diverse community.
The majority of the public employees in the branch work in public libraries, and in the New Brunswick branch, the majority of employees work in libraries.
The New Brunswick Public Library in New Brunswick, New Brunswick is a liberal branch with a conservative population, according to the board.
The public library has an African American population of nearly 20 percent, and over 50 percent of the branches employees are African-Americans, according the board, which oversees the public branch in New Jersey.
Hennensen explained that the New Jersey branch is an “open-access” branch.
That means the library has access to all of the libraries in the area, but is not required to accept patrons from other libraries.
It is also a public-records library, which means it collects public records and is open to the public.
“You have an opportunity to come in and see these materials that are in public domain,” Henninsen said.
But, he added, the New Yorkers public library branch in Newark, New Jersey, is “a conservative branch, with a very conservative demographic, with people that don’t speak the same language.”
In a statement, the board said the “liberal branches” in New Albany, New York, and New Brunswick “reflect a more conservative perspective on the public space.”
A statement from the Newark branch’s public library says that the Newark Public Library “is committed to the inclusion and equity of all people regardless of their color, religion, or ethnic background.”
The public-record library in Newark is also “a progressive branch,” according to its website.
The Newark branch has an Asian-American population of roughly 9 percent, but over 55 percent of staff work in other branches.
“As a progressive library, we do a lot inclusivity,” the Newark library’s website says.
The city of Newark has the second-largest library collection in the country.
The branches in Newark and New Jersey account for about one-third of the Newark libraries public- access library system.
The largest public library in New Hampshire is the one in Manchester, New Hampshire.
The Manchester branch, which has an “alternative” public library experience, has an estimated 1,200 employees.
The community library in Manchester has a population of about 11,000, and there are about 1,600 employees, according a public library spokesperson.
“It is an inclusive, diverse library,” said Tom Clements, the community library’s director.
The state of New Hampshire has a diversity of libraries, Clements said, with branches
