It is really fun when several of your interests converge in an awesome package, and this first stop hit several of mine.
Little Free Libraries have a special place in my heart. They are, essentially, boxes placed in neighbourhoods on private property where anyone can come "take a book, leave a book".
I've done a Little Free Library cache before, so I was stoked to find another one. The fact that it was Doctor Who themed made it an instant must-find for our trip.
This Little Free Library, made up like a TARDIS, is in the front yard of a private residence in Lisle Illinois. We pulled up just after a rain storm at 4:30PM, after driving all day. When we saw the box we all jumped out of the Geovan of Destiny, excited to take a closer look.
So lets go inside and see whats in there...
The library has 3 shelves of books inside. The top two are full of novels, and the bottom is full of kids picture books.
I happen to keep a set of novels in the van in case I come across a book exchange cache (that is normal, right?), so I was prepared to swap some books. After examining all the options, I let the kids pick one story each. They were stoked to get them.TARDIS cache to shame, and I thought mine was already pretty decent). Aside from being half size of the original, I would swear its an accurate representation.
cool caches in my time).
If you are in the area, I highly recommend checking out "Full of Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey Stuff" (GC4R1TF) for yourself. You won't regret it.
