Spotlight on the Past: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo II Moon Landing - July 20, 1969 


Moon Rock on Display at the Main Library!
We have an actual piece of the moon on permanent display! Donated by Susan Eisele Black, the wife of the late Apollo 7 astronaut Donn F. Eisele, the moon rock was officially dedicated on October 23, 2007 and is displayed on the 6th floor of the Main Library in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Apollo astronauts, on missions that took place between 1968 and 1972, were each given a portion of the 842 pounds of moon rock collected during the moon landings. A 20-minute film of the Apollo 7 mission runs continuously at the library exhibit. Photos of the Apollo 7 mission, space related keepsakes and life-size replicas of astronauts are also on display. Admission is free and the exhibit is open during regular library hours. More...
