Stump the Librarian: Don’t Eat Fireflies!

Why, hello there! Jill and Liz from KDL’s Stump the Librarian podcast are here to answer your challenging questions. In this episode, Jill tackles the question of whether or not fish get thirsty. You’ll want to have a cool beverage nearby. Liz stays up late to investigate the fascinating lives of fireflies --blinking bright in the night, but only for a limited time. And we learn they taste terrible. Liz also recommends a nonfiction book that answers all your urgent questions about pee. It’s timely information for summertime fun, so listen in on your next road trip or while relaxing by the water!

Join our librarians every other Wednesday as they try to answer your inquisitive questions and see if it’s possible to stump a librarian.  Do you have a burning question? They would love to hear what questions are on your mind! Don’t forget to subscribe to the podcast via or wherever you prefer to listen, so you never miss an episode.
