Libraries – no need to reinvent the wheel

Shhh! I know a place that you can ask any question and receive a professionally-researched answer. There’s even a 24/7 online chat function on their website. Or if you don’t have access to a computer, you can meet the researcher face-to-face. If you need accessibility features for print disabled, the professionals will guide you to spoken-word or video resources. Best yet, it’s tax-supported and FREE for all ages! I can’t imagine how the NYT missed adding the Public Library to the article The Answers Are Out There, and New Q. and A. Sites Dig Them Up 😉
