So, when the Apocalypse DOES come... head to the... Library?! (Really!)
Obviously, they are full of information, everything from mechanical, to electrical/electronic, to pharmaceutical, to first aid. But also...
! (Of the city, and surrounding areas) - 'member the Dewey Decimal System? Head to the 900s: geography and mapping - sewers, etc
- safe travel, hiding and connectivity!
And, also... Safety
! In post-Katrina New Orleans, one of the only
resources NOT to be attacked, looted, and plundered during the
crisis was the city library service (other than the wind/water damage). Not a single library across the district reported human damage!
With internet and cellphone services down, they are a central source of informaton.
What else would you be looking for?

[I realize there have been other threads about the show, but I could not find one reference to this particular piece of info (certainly not a thread,
and much less a single post, referencing it), which seems worthy of a thread of its own]
