The whole family is invited to join us at the Springville Road Regional Branch Library for the summer learning program Meet an Astronaut! on Friday, June 7, at 4:00 p.m. We will be hosting Dr. Larry DeLucas, who is a scientist at The University of Alabama at Birmingham and NASA's first civilian scientist-astronaut. He worked aboard the Columbia conducting 720 experiments for two weeks, travelling over 5.7 million miles in 221 orbits. He later served as chief scientist for the International Space Station from 1994-95. Visit us to meet him and learn more about his amazing experiences.
