The TARDIS Lands at the Library: A Celebration of Doctor Who

Doctor Who with organization logos

The Stoughton Public Library is bringing Doctor Who to life this April, with activities and displays for both current and future fans of all ages!  

Displays will be scattered throughout the library universe - learn some fun facts, create a post-it note TARDIS, explore the exhibits and win some fantastic prizes!  

Watch for a replica of the TARDIS to land at the library by Friday, April 12 (although this expected date, like so much with TARDIS operations, is really not precise)!
