"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!"
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!).
In the meantime, check out these time-bending books and DVDs featuring the Doctors and his interstellar friends, companions and enemies.
