Stump the Librarian: SNOW Much Fun

Helloooo everybody! Episode 23 of Stump the Librarian is brought to you by your trusty librarian Jill and her new sidekick, Liz! Both librarians love pets, but who has more pets in her home? Listen to find out! 

This episode was recorded during football season, so we’re exploring what sportscasters mean when they say, “first down” and how exactly players see yard lines in the snow! Speaking of snow, we also explore the weather term “lake-effect snow” and discuss how to make your very own weather jar at home. Find the link in our show notes to learn more. Liz talked about a sidewalk egg-frying contest—can you guess which state hosts this event? We wrapped up with Jill sharing a fabulous chapter book about a mischievous pet shop bird, hatching its great escape. It’s seasonal, it’s exciting, it’s quality time with your neighborhood librarians!
