NASA @ My Library: Exploring the Moon and Mars

Siouxland Libraries will join the 2017 International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) celebration on Saturday, October 28, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Oak View Branch Library, 3700 East Third Street. This science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) program for all ages, presented in cooperation with a NASA @ My Library grant, will feature braille books, green screens, and other technology to assist area residents to prepare for the annual public outreach.

The event encourages observation, appreciation, and understanding of our moon and its connection to planetary science and exploration. First organized in 2010, InOMN encourages everyone on earth to learn more about the moon.

The NASA @ My Library project is led by the National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Science Institute. Partners include the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, Pacific Science Center, Cornerstones of Science, and Education Development Center. NASA @ My Library is made possible through the support of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate as part of its STEM Activation program.
