New York City History Day is an education program that engages students in grades 6-12 in the discovery and interpretation of historical topics. By participating in History Day, students can research topics related to the annual theme and can express themselves creatively through various formats such as exhibit boards, documentaries, websites, papers, and performances.

Brooklyn Connections is the school outreach arm of Brooklyn Public Library's Brooklyn Collection. Our mission is to serve Brooklyn schools, educators and students by using archival education to cultivate 21st century learning skills and provide professional learning opportunities through the lens of local Brooklyn history.
