TARDIS has arrived at the Library
A team of engineers from Johnson Controls Inc Plymouth office created the TARDIS for the library's teen zone. The TARDIS is a reproduction of the time travel machine and space craft that is featured in the Doctor Who television, book and movie series. Johnson Control engineers donated the funds and labor to create the TARDIS as part of a community service project under JCI's Blue Sky Initiative. They selected this idea from several options offered to them by the library. The Doctor Who series started over 50 years ago and interest continues through the books, graphic novels, DVDs, and CDs available at the library. Stop in for a photo op with the TARDIS and check out our materials to learn more about Doctor Who.
