Summer Film Series: Gravity

Receiving seven Oscar® wins, Gravity stars Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and George Clooney (Up in the Air, Syriana) in a heart-pounding thriller written, directed and produced by Oscar® winner Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men) set in the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.

Stargazing Party

Join us for a magical adventure through time and space for a special after hours stargazing event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. 

Experience the moon landing as you navigate through the library to our "observatory". Using stargazing simulation and the help of Francis O'Reilly, Vice-President of Springfield Telescope Makers, we'll travel through space to look at planets, stars, and constellations. Mr. O'Reilly will discuss telescope-making and some history of the moon landing.

Light snacks and beverages will be served.
