The New York Public Library has a very popular Instagram account with over 68,000 followers. In December, the Library started posting some old questions recorded in those pre-internet days and started using the hashtag #letmelibrarianthatforyou

This program very quickly gained media attention (here, here and here) , inspired other libraries to share their stories on Twitter, and librarian Rosa Caballero-Li was even interviewed on NPR about the project.

The questions, each originally recorded on a classic catalog card, are being given new life in the digital age. They are in insight into how much has changed and yet still the same.

Below are selections from their collection.
