Some time ago, several members of staff were made up as zombies for a calendar shoot called Attack of the Zombrarians. It was a lot of work for the effects artist, but great fun and a chance to show that library staff have a great sense of humour.
More recently, one of the photos from the calendar was used by The Advertiser as part of the promotion for the National Year of Reading. It was great to see the interest rekindled as it was followed up by a reporter from Weekend Sunrise, wanting to do a televised story about the ‘zombies in the library’.
One Thursday night after closure, when the Library was dark, the wind was icy and the rain poured, the zombies rose again – with the final piece screening on Sunrise on Sunday 10th June. If you missed it check it out here.
