A colleague and I have this running joke that our library should be turned into a disco at night to raise money. I think this \"after hours\" reference service is a good idea too. From the Daily SouthTown\"So many people have questions (they) come up with in the middle of the night and nobody is there\" to provide answers, said Sara McCambridge, Homer Township reference librarian. Even while watching a game show such as \"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,\" if residents want to check on answers, they can call Night Owl, she said.\"
\"Homer Township librarians urge residents to call their library — even though it will be closed.
The Homer Township Public Library began offering the Night Owl Reference Service on Saturday.\"
\"Anyone can telephone the library after it closes and connect to Night Owl, a service featuring librarians who find answers to residents\' questions.\"
\"Residents can access the service Mondays through Fridays from 9 p.m. to midnight and Saturdays and Sundays from 5 p.m. to midnight.\"
