NASAatMyLibrary

Milwaukee Public Library was selected through a competitive application process to be part of NASA@ My Library, an education initiative created to increase and enhance STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) learning opportunities for library patrons throughout the nation, including geographic areas and populations currently underrepresented in STEAM education.

As a NASA@ My Library Partner, Milwaukee Public Library will hold public programs that explore NASA science and technology, specifically around NASA’s newest next-generation telescope launch (fall 2021), the first telescope images (spring 2022), and as part of the Collaborative Summer Library Program (summer 2022). More information, including special programming, will be available in the coming months.

Searching for our cosmic origins is the ultimate goal of NASA's new James Webb Space Telescope--set to launch on December 18, 2021. Looking with its powerful infrared eyes, Webb will observe the very first galaxies and stars. It will also search out exoplanets and potentials for extraterrestrial life.  Explore all these amazing space quests in this special show with Bob Bonadurer, Director of the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium. Watch in-person at the Soref Planetarium at the Milwaukee Public Museum; 800 West Wells Street. Or watch it virtually via Zoom.
