Lunch & Learn

Join us at the library for Lunch & Learn this Friday, July 5th! In conjunction with this year’s Summer Reading Program theme, A Universe of Stories, we will be viewing a documentary that chronicles NASA’s Apollo 8 mission.

In NOVA: Apollo’s Daring Mission, Apollo astronauts and engineers tell the inside story of Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon. The U.S. space program suffered a bitter setback when Apollo 1 ended in a deadly fire during a pre-launch run-through. In disarray, and threatened by the prospect of a Soviet Union victory in the space race, NASA decided upon a radical and risky change of plan: turn Apollo 8 from an earth-orbit mission into a daring sprint to the moon while relying on untried new technologies. Fifty years after the historic mission, the Apollo 8 astronauts and engineers recount the feats of engineering that paved the way to the moon.

Watch this 60-minute documentary in the Kozak Room while you eat your lunch! Refreshments will be served, but guests are of course welcome to bring their own food.
