Rock Island, IL: Teenage fans of a certain time-traveling doctor should set their TARDIS coordinates for 6:00 pm on Thursday, Dec. 18 at the Rock Island Main Library, 401 19th Street.

The library will offer a Teen Doctor Who party with activities based on the popular BBC science-fiction television program. Since its beginnings in 1963, the show about a time-traveling humanoid alien Time Lord named "The Doctor" has acquired a cult television following. The Doctor, played by 12 different actors over the series, explores the universe in the TARDIS, which appears as a blue British police box, righting wrongs and fixing problems with creative thinking and his trusty sonic screwdriver. He often clashes with the Daleks, a race of unfeeling cyborgs bent on dominating other worlds.

Teens will watch a non-BBC movie based on the invading Daleks, create some TARDIS and Dalek crafts, play trivia for fun prizes, and enjoy snacks "fit for a Time Lord."  The event is free and open to anyone ages 12 to 18.

For more events at Rock Island Public Libraries, visit the library website atwww.rockislandlibrary.org, follow the library on Facebook or Twitter, or call 309-732-READ (7323.)

Founded in 1872, the Rock Island Public Library serves the area through three locations, which include the Main, 30/31 and Southwest Branches, community outreach efforts, and online opportunities that provide resources to enhance personal achievement and stimulate the imagination.
