Libraries hosting lunar programs

Joliet (IL) Herald Sun

"Return to the Moon," a program on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, will be presented this month at the Lockport and Crest Hill libraries.

The orbiter is the first mission in the Vision for Space Exploration, a plan to return to the moon and then to travel to Mars and beyond, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Michelle Yehling, master educator at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, will describe the orbiter mission during two visits to the Des Plaines Valley Public Library District.

The program will be presented in:

• Lockport: 7 p.m. June 10 at the library branch, 121 E. Eighth St.; and

• Crest Hill: 7 p.m. June 17 at the library branch, 1298 Theodore St.

The event is free, and reservations are not required, said Karyn Goldstein, adult services professional for the library district.
