Check out these helpful homework tips from the New York Public Library and talk to them in person at our 6th Annual K-12 Education Expo this Saturday!
-Get a library card! A NYPL library card allows you to check out books, DVDs, CDs, and browse the web FOR FREE! http://www.nypl.org/help/library-card
-Establish a set time for homework and/or projects. It is not a good idea to do homework before bedtime or to leave long, involved projects for the last minute.
-Find a quiet, comfortable place to get your work done. That way you’ll be less distracted and more focused on your assignments. If you can’t find a good place to work at home or school, look up your local library branch here: http://www.nypl.org/locations
-Have your supplies handy. Make sure materials, such as paper, pencils, erasers, etc., are available when doing your homework.
-If you need to do further research for one of your assignments, don’t just rely on a web search! Some websites don’t always have correct information! At www.nypl.org you can search hundreds of online databases that are guaranteed to be accurate!
-Want to add something extra special to your assignment? Search the NYPL Digital Gallery to find images that will complement your hard work! http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/index.cfm
