July Offers "One Giant Leap" at Linebaugh Library  | month of July, Linebaugh Public Library, Apollo 11, WGNS

45-years later, all of this month the Linebaugh Public Library helps us remember Buzz Aldrin's "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Robert Rickman reports...

 

VERBATIM:

The summer of 1969 was historic for the United States as the first Americans landed on the Moon. Many of us can remember being glued to our black-and-white television sets and watching as the Apollo 11 spacecraft launched on July 20, with a crew of three: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.

The words of Armstrong are always easy to recall: "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." The success of the Apollo 11 mission fulfilled the goal of the late President Kennedy to see a man on the Moon before the end of the decade.

Linebaugh patron, Joaquim Pipa, has developed an interactive CD to teach children and adults the history of the Apollo 11 mission. The computer program combines quizzes and animation to illustrate the various stages of the mission in a fun, engaging way. The program will be available for in-house use during the month of July at any of the branch libraries of the Linebaugh Public Library System. Ask at the main desk of your local branch to go through the program at one of our public access computers.  Robert Rickman WGNS news.

“We are very appreciative of Mr. Pipa’s contribution to the libraries for the commemoration of the Apollo 11 event,” says Carol Ghattas, Branch Librarian at Linebaugh. “It is a great opportunity for children to learn about this historic moment and for parents and grandparents to share with them the importance of the event for our country at that time. I hope many will take advantage of this unique resource.”

Eagleville Bicentennial Public Library is located at 317 Hwy 99E in Eagleville. MGL Library is located inside Patterson Park Community Center at 521 Mercury Blvd. in Murfreesboro.
