With nearly 53 million items, the New York Public Library is the second largest public library in the United States (behind the Library of Congress), and fourth largest in the world.[3] It is a private, non-governmental, independently managed, nonprofit corporation operating with both private and public financing.[4] The library has branches in the boroughs of Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island, and affiliations with academic and professional libraries in the metropolitan area of New York State. The City of New York’s other two boroughs, Brooklyn and Queens, are served by the Brooklyn Public Library and the Queens Library, respectively. The branch libraries are open to the general public and consist of circulating libraries. The New York Public Library also has four research libraries which are open to the general public as well.

The library, officially chartered as The New York Public Library, Astor, Lenox and Tilden Foundations, was developed in the 19th century, founded from an amalgamation of grass-roots libraries, and social libraries of bibliophiles and the wealthy, aided by the philanthropy of the wealthiest Americans of their age.he New York Public Library (NYPL) is a public library system in New York City.

100-Year-Old Life Hacks That Are Surprisingly Useful Today

People don’t often look back on the early 1900’s for advice, but what if we could actually learn something from the Lost Generation? The New York Public Library has digitized 100 “how to do it” cards found in cigarette boxes over 100 years ago, and the tips they give are so practical that millennials reading this might want to take notes.

Back in the day, cigarette cards were popular collectibles included in every pack, and displayed photos of celebrities, advertisements, and more. Gallaher cigarettes, a UK-founded tobacco company that was once the largest in the world, decided to print a series of helpful how-to’s on their cards, which ranged from mundane tasks (boiling potatoes) to unlikely scenarios (stopping a runaway horse). Most of them are insanely clever, though, like how to make a fire extinguisher at home. Who even knew you could do that?

The entire set of life hacks is now part of the NYPL’s George Arents Collection. Check out some of the cleverest ones we could find below. You never know when you’ll have to clean real lace!

Things I Learned as an Undergrad
  • Always bring water with you. ALWAYS. Invest in a water bottle that you can carry around with you and don’t let it out of your sight. 
  • Talk to your professors. Go visit their office hours. Ask them questions. Talk to them about your life. They don’t get to just chat with students that often, so hanging out with them regularly makes them feel appreciated. 
    • also, this pays off come job hunt and grad school recs time, because they know you well enough to write letters for you. 
  • Also, thank your profs for everything they’ve done. When I graduated, I gave the profs who had most influenced me and who I was closest to small thank you gifts and notes to thank them for everything they’d done. They were incredibly touched.
  • If the prof repeats something or writes it on the board, PUT IT IN YOUR NOTES. Usually this means that they think it is incredibly important, and they want you to know it for the exam. 
  • Have a note-taking method, and be willing to be flexible with it. For each class, I had a basic notes method (date in the corner, title of the section underlined, and then black for powerpoint information and color for extra information given in class), but it changed with each class. Each professor will teach differently - don’t be surprised if your notes for each class look a little different. 
  • Do something outside of classes. Whether that’s acting in the school play, joining a Greek organization, or being part of a club, make sure that there is something else outside of course work to keep you motivated.
  • Take one day off each week to relax. I always took my Fridays off, once classes were done. I’d relax, watch some TV or Netflix, read a book I’d beeb looking forward to, and just chill. 
  • If you need to get out of your dorm, do it. Find some friends and go shopping for a little while. Go sit in a coffee shop. Sit in a bookstore and read. Believe me, this will pay off in increased productivity when you go back to your work.
  • BUY A PLANNER AND USE IT. I live out of my bullet journal - it has my entire life in it. I’ve also used the New York Public Library planner, which is ideal for students in undergrad. 
  • Color-coding is super helpful. I used one color for each subject, and made sure that my pens, highlighters, etc. matched up. It helped me from getting too confused about what was due for which class and when.
  • DO THE READING. Even if you just do an academic skim, you’re better off than not doing the reading at all. And your professors will thank you when you’re helping to lead class discussion.
  • Don’t forget to have fun. It’s college, you’re supposed to enjoy it. Don’t spend all your time in your dorm or doing homework. You’ll find yourself with lots of regrets if you do.
