But What Will I Read? Survive the Temporary Closure of Libraries Like a Librarian

The countdown has begun. You battled the crowds and long lines for bottled water and batteries and then bought five cases of tortilla chips, a case of individually packaged snacking olives and a box of chocolate Twinkies because the non-perishable shelves at your grocery store were bare and you could not leave empty handed. You've filled your bathtub with water and collected all of your ice from the ice bin in plastic grocery bags - just in case. All you needed was some books from the library and you discover all the libraries have closed their buildings until the crisis is over. WHAT WILL YOU READ??

Never fear - the building is closed, but  librarians are here with a perfect solution to your very real problem. And if you act quickly, you will have plenty to do even IF you lose both power and internet service.
