On Sunday, June 2, the Fletcher Free Library will open its doors to families with music, space-themed snacks, rocketry activities and rare moon rocks on loan from NASA. The “launch” party celebrates the library’s Summer Challenge, titled “A Universe of Stories.”

The Fletcher Free summer program falls under the umbrella of the Collaborative Summer Library Program, which shares programming and resources around the country. A grant from NASA@My Library — a project run by NASA to increase STEM learning opportunities — supports this year’s far-out theme. NASA will provide moon samples for the weekend event, as well as a full-size Orion telescope, and backpacks that the library can lend out, complete with mini telescopes, books and computer mouses that can be used for coding.
