You never know when the Zombie Apocalypse is going to strike but with a book like that, you'll be ready. And if it does not happen at all, you'll still have some serious DIY skills anyway!

You can make anything in the library's Maker Studio. Seriously, anything. With a book like this, our tools and supplies, and your undying belief that the zombie apocalypse is nigh, you'll be ready to bug out when things go sideways.
