Within those limitations, further closures may become necessary on short notice due to staff shortages. We will update our social media accounts in those instances.

Zombies seem to be the new thing in popular culture these days. Whether it is the hit television series The Walking Dead, or the huge number of books featuring the undead, they are everywhere! We were excited this week to receive the much anticipated new book Encyclopedia of the Zombie. This informative and well-researched book has entries covering all things zombie. Articles are presented in alphabetical format covering such interesting topics as the history and different types of zombies, zombies in movies and television, zombie books, and much more.
We here at the library are especially proud that one of our own, Associate Director of Public Services, Celise A. Reech-Harper, is one of the contributing authors of this book. She researched and wrote several of the entries, including a fascinating article about video games featuring zombies.
This book can be found in the non-fiction section of the library, Dewey number 398.21. It is available for check-out, so you can take your time and read through all of the interesting articles. We also have many of the books and movies that are discussed, so you might want to check them out as well. Remember, for help in locating this, or any other library material, please ask one of our helpful staff members who are always happy to assist you.
