A Library Saved And More About Egypt

Whenever we here at NPR want to learn something or have a pressing question, we go to the legendary Kee Malesky, our longest-serving librarian, who prowls through the precincts of all knowledge.

Kee is the author of the book All Facts Considered, and she sometimes visits Weekend Edition Saturday host Scott Simon to enlighten us with trivial treasures.

Today, we learn about a strange goopy substance, the Suez Canal and an act of heroism in Egypt that had librarians worldwide cheering.
