The countdown begins today!

TheĀ Atlantis crew have arrived in Florida and are preparing for NASA’sĀ final Space Shuttle launch, this Friday July 8th, 2011. Since 1981 kids and adults have become interested in space by watching shuttles take off and have followed their curiosity into the science section of their local library to learn more about how humans travel in space.

Nurture your child’s curiosity this week while we bid a fond farewell to the space shuttle program with games from NASA’s kids’ club, behind the scenes looks at how the shuttle program worksfrom NASA’s web site and great reads about space travel and space facts from our library!
