Geek Out with Doctor Who
The Doctor loves libraries, and libraries love Doctor Who. Later this year, the BBC science fiction classic Doctor Who will celebrate its 50-year anniversary. In celebration, CPL's very own Whovians have put together a delightful display all about our favorite Time Lord. Stop by from July 22nd to 28th to see what we've put together (hint: it's bigger on the inside!).
"You want weapons? We're in a library. Books are the best weapon in the world. This room's the greatest arsenal we could have. Arm yourself!"
In the meantime, check out these time-bending books and DVDs featuring the Doctors and his interstellar friends, companions and enemies.
