Library of the Living Dead: Preparing the Central Library for the Zombie Apocalypse
Some of the teens worked on a detailed map showing how we could help with triage and defense. Almost everyone made zombie warning signs and contributed to a list of things we would need at Central to keep safe. After the teens finished, we presented our plan to a member of DPL’s security team. If they implement all of the teens’ requests, you will soon see guard bears and salt moats around all of our branches.
Arianna, Alice, and Theodore Noble came from Green Valley Ranch to help us prepare for the zombies. Arianna said, "This is seriously the best time I’ve ever had at the Library! I’m glad someone is finally going to do something about the zombie apocalypse!" Using books from the library, Arianna made some amazing signs to warn people about zombies.
Jeannine and Johnathan Ochtera are regulars at our Summer of Reading events. Both Jeannine and Johnathan explained about the many uses of salt against the zombies. They came up with the name for our program: Library of the Living Dead.
All and all, we had a great time!
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
