This is the notion I'd like to entertain today.
Now, I know that sounds scary. Living in a post-apocalyptic world isn't something many of us have given a lot of thought to beyond storing a few bottles of water and some Twinkies in the garage “just in case.” But fear not! Even if you haven't got your running-from-zombie boots stashed under the bed for a quick getaway, just think of this as the beginning of a wonderful new world of possibilities. Once we're past the whole society-falling-apart thing, anything could happen! And, if we want a little peek into just a few of the possibilities, we need look no further than the 3rd floor of the library. We've got you covered.
