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.
July 1947, in Roswell, NM, a nearby military base's official announcement of the recovery of a crashed flying saucer went nationwide. The military's retraction came too late. Seventy years later many people continue to embrace the UFO theory, & hundreds of curiosity seekers visit Roswell every year. Whether you are a believer, a conspiracy theorist, or simply a lover of scifi, July's display with aliens, space exploration, & far away worlds will have something for you to enjoy.
