NASA Grant Awarded

Earlier this year, our library applied for and received a NASA@MyLibrary grant (https://apply.ala.org/nasalibraries/guidelines) through the American Library Association in partnership with the Space Science Institute! We have already hosted two events making use of the grant (see our presentation links below), as well as added to our astronomy and planetary science collection materials. We look forward to several more years of training, resources, and partnership with SSI! Watch our website and follow us on Facebook to stay up-to-date on future astro-developments.
