You all remember the Awesome Box, right?
Just arrived in the Teen Room is our next homage to The Doctor, our TARDIS shelves! As you can see, it’s not QUITE full size, but it’s close.
Once again this was a project brainstormed by staff, including myself and one of our Trustees who is also a Whovian, Michael A. Burstein. The creation of the shelves was executed beautifully by our custodians T. J. Mattimoe, Mike Malone, and Frank Hickey. They built the exterior of the cabinet, I painted it all, and now we have our very own TARDIS to take readers away.
For the summer, the Brookline Summer Reading List titles (7-8th grades and the High School Lists) will be shelved inside the TARDIS. What about after summer? We’ll have to see. Could be anything.
Librarians, my people.

Being poor and gay in New York at the turn of the 90s wasn’t all Paris Is Burning drag realness, there was also a darker side to all of that fabulous, fierce and ferocious stuff, as many transvestites and transsexuals worked as prostitutes and hung around the city’s meatpacking district.
Japanese-born New York resident and photographer Katsu Naito began shooting photos of the trans-prostitutes he saw at the time and earlier this year finally published the pics in his book West Side Rendezvous.
