Here's a librarian question...

Last night I watched The Day After Tomorrow (since Louisville didn't get any snow, I figured I'd watch a movie that had LOTS of snow). And here's what I'm wondering:

If you were trapped in the New York Public Library and had to burn books to stay alive, what sections would you start with?

Myself, I'd probably start with phone directories (since they'll be all out of date when everyone dies and/or moves south anyway), followed by the 551s (weather) since that would obviously need updating.

What do you think?
