Currently on Display: One Giant Leap

Apollo 11 was the first crewed mission to land on the Moon on July 20, 1969. There have been six such landings (1969 - 1972), and the United States is the only country to have successfully conducted crewed missions to the Moon! This month we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this great accomplishment with books about the space race, space travel and life in space and on other planets. Whether you’re fascinated by NASA, prefer sci-fi fantasy, or fall somewhere in between, these books will take you on a journey through the final frontier.
