Experience the 1969 Apollo 11 Moon Landing at Douglas County Libraries

This summer, July 20 to be exact, marks the 50th anniversary of the first spaceflight to land humans on the moon.

You’ll also witness the Apollo 11 journey, the moon landing, and mankind’s first steps upon it.

Several curated displays and dioramas depicting the technologies and accomplishments of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space programs will also be exhibited at the event.
