I want a post-apocalyptic bookmobile!

Who wouldn't want to watch a educational sci-fi video series from 1985 about library skills?!

All videos can be accessed on YouTube. And there is more info on Wikipedia.

It is 2123 and everyone on Earth is leaving, in order to escape "the Wipers." All human knowledge has been collected (and organized) for preservation in the ultimate library (gee, the Dewey Decimal System really CAN catalog everything!). But one book has gone missing and Ms. Bookhart goes in search of it. Hijinks, suspended animation, and library skills education ensue.

"Put it on microfilm and file it..."
