As you all probably know, July 20th marks a significant point in history. On July 20, 1969, as part of NASA’s Apollo 11 Lunar Mission, six astronauts landed safely on the moon.  It’s crazy to think that prior to only 50 years ago, no one had landed or was able to land on the moon.  To learn more about life before and after Apollo, check out NASA’s anniversary webpage here.

To celebrate the anniversary, the 2019 Summer Reading theme is A Universe of Stories.  The Livingston Public Library has many wonderful events planned for children, teens, and adults so make sure you check out our event calendar!
