Zombie Survival Guide
Since the zombie pandemic is not a matter of if, but when, the Santa Clara City Library has put together a Zombies Survival Guide that will provide resources and information for the continued existence of the human race. Whether you are looking for information on zombie-related materials in films, a good book, or a graphic novel, this guide should be useful in steering you in the right direction. If you are interested in living, you can drop by the Library to learn about zombie survival skills. This guide is aimed at helping teens.
Remember, your best defense against the coming Zombie Apocalyse is to feed your brain, which is also something that Zombies (the formal subject heading for zombies) like to eat, with information from the Library. To access many of the items in the Library's catalog on Zombies go to Teen Central (1st floor). Even some of titles in the Juvenile section are also fun for teens to read. The Youth Services Desk is here to assist you with all your zombie-related needs!
