This summer, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with SummerQuest: A Universe of Stories! We cannot wait to have astronomer Kevin Manning here at the Abington Community Library on the actual anniversary, July 20. From 7-9PM, enjoy a special after-hours event where we’ll learn about astronomy with a special presentation culminating in a look at the sky through a high-powered telescope! Don’t forget to register by calling 570-587-3440 or stopping by.
Take a look at some brand new children’s books added to the collection this summer featuring the moon and space. Click to find it in the catalog to place a hold.
