Please vote for us! Vote Code: 65678 The TARDIS is a 1970s police telephone box from the TV Show Doctor Who and was transformed into a free library to allow the community to access books in a cool way. The word TARDIS stands for Totally Awesome Reading Dispensary in Society. The basic idea is: community members are free to take a book from the library and also encouraged to leave a book too. When you open the TARDIS, you are greeted with a mural of the inside of the twelth doctor's TARDIS engine room. Slide open the doors of the mural, and you will find shelves of books. Back Story: Team TARDIS was tired of looking at an empty lot across from one of its family's properties in Detroit and wanted to give something to the city that helped others and, of course, looked awesome. Dan and his dad, W. John Zemke, quickly got to work. For more info, check out our Mashable article: http://mashable.com/2017/06/02/dr-who-tardis-library-detroit/#jINakTwyTaq1m
