Stump the Librarian: My Nocturnal Gerbil

Helloooo everybody! Episode 25 of Stump the Librarian is brought to you by Jill and Liz, who first share their favorite fictional characters. Would it surprise you that those characters come from books? In this episode we learn about awesome animal adaptations, some by nocturnal animals and some by those living in super cold climates. Jill gives Liz a tricky pop quiz about whether or not certain animals are nocturnal—see if you can get a few more right than she did. Liz recommends a sci-fi adventure story that had her rooting for a robot and looking towards the stars. Tune in and spend some quality time with your neighborhood librarians!
