The largest Little Free Library in Mississippi is, of all things, a replica of the TARDIS, the time and space travel device used in Doctor Who.”
Dick Ford, the primary inspiration behind this unique library says “the TARDIS is “much bigger on the inside and full of adventure and mystery, so was an appropriate and engaging vehicle for a Little Free Library.” And evidently, the community has taken it to heart as “some folks take time to organize the shelves,” while others “bring boxes of books to replenish the library when supplies get low.”
(This is just one of a number of inspired Little Free Libraries scattered throughout the state.)
