Each week the staff at the Roseville Library answers more than 2,500 questions on every subject under the sun. Here are some of the most interesting ones they’ve gotten lately.
Q. If I damage a library book, can I bring in a replacement copy of the same title rather than paying the Library for it? I promise that the replacement copy will be in good condition.
Q. Do you have computers for general public use?
Q. I’ve heard that it’s possible to revive a sluggish drain with ordinary household chemicals? Do you have a recipe?
Q. So what’s the real story behind kombucha? Is it good for you? Or is it just a weird-tasting kind of iced tea?
NOTE: We will be taking a look back on some interesting questions while the librarian is on summer vacation.
Q. What is a ‘knitting nancy’?
Q. Can I request that the Library buy a new book by my favorite author as an e-book? I’d love to be able to read more library books on my e-reader.
Q. Fort Snelling was founded to protect white settlers in Minnesota. Was it ever actually attacked?
Q. What is Yggdrasil? And how do you pronounce it?
Q. I noticed that Garrison Keillor is retiring from his radio program this summer. Can you tell me when his career began?
Q. I heard on TV that Tim Kaine was born in St. Paul. What neighborhood did he live in?
