jason_rotary1 Information Services Manager Jason Kuhl spoke to the Arlington Heights Noon Rotary Group recently about the services his department offers. He highlighted questions that our librarians answer for customers at the Answer Center, like what can be done about racoons in your house or what is the most popular New Year's resolution and how often is it kept. (By the way, the most popular resolution is, as you might guess, weight loss, but about 92% of the time, it is not achieved.)  Kuhl encouraged audience members to contact the Answer Center with their questions, whether it is to settle a bet, find consumer information, get driving directions, find out about village ordinances, get answers to trivia questions and much more. Call the Answer Center at 847-506-2633, or email, text or live chat with your question.
