Zombie Awareness Month: Hands-on learning!

Zombie sillhouetteMay is Zombie Awareness Month, and so every Thursday this month, we will be showing you ways to use the library to learn more about zombies.

How can you get hands-on knowledge of how to survive a zombie apocalypse before it’s too late?  At your library, of course!  We are looking for teen volunteers to join our zombie horde next month.

June 15th the library will showcase our “Juicy Brains” in the Berry Dairy Days parade, and we need zombie volunteers to get in costume and walk with us.

Then, June 26th from 2:30-4:30 the Burlington Public Library will be overrun with Zombies for our first-ever Zombie Survival Scavenger Hunt.  Zombies will roam the book stacks, looking for participating “survivors” and trying to infect them before they gather all of the required pieces of their Bug Out Bag survival kits.

For the Survival Scavenger hunt, volunteer zombies will be made up by the good folks at the Northwest Hair Academy, and will have their hands dusted in glow powder so that when they touch the Survivors’ arms or backs the “infection” will show under a blacklight sweep (Blacklight courtesy of the Burlington Police Department).

Zombie volunteers can earn community service credit, as well as get some sweet photos taken of themselves in full zombie regalia at our zombie “photo booth.”

Want to be a part of our horde?

  • Email SarahL [at] ci.burlington.wa.us,
  • Come sign up in person (ask for Abby or Maggie), or
