Imagine the library from hell: stacks filled with unseen dangers; furniture that’s been overturned and tossed into makeshift barriers; groans, shrieks, and manic laughter as frantic patrons struggle in dim, emergency lighting to find safety from monsters lying in wait to terrify, give chase, and contaminate them with a single touch. This was the scene inside Alaska’s largest public library on October 20, when two floors of the Z. J. Loussac Library in Anchorage were transformed into zombie central for an emergency preparedness program. The goal was to teach local residents how to prepare for natural disasters and pandemics.
