Friends of the Library Fall Semester Presentation -- Recent Findings in Astronomy and Space Exploration: David Ziels, Lancaster High School ’81, will talk about how the last 50 years have revolutionized our knowledge of the cosmos. Spend an evening learning about the latest discoveries, including the recent Pluto fly-by, Saturn/Titan, the asteroid Ceres, planets around other stars—and more. The presentation will be held October 22 at 7 p.m. in the Raymond S. Wilkes Gallery for the Visual Arts, sponsored by Friends of the Library and the Hannah V. McCauley Library.  This event is free and open to the public.
Special Note: Ziels won first prize in the Planetary Society's international Huygen's Art Contest special category as the truest artistic vision of what Saturn's moon, Titan, looked like beneath its thick veil of clouds. This image was created for the Planetary Society's Huygen's Art Contest, and won first prize as the image that ultimately most resembled the subsequent actual photos.

About The Friends of the Library:

The Friends of the Library organization was created in 1985 by Library Director Hannah V. McCauley. The mission of the Friends of the Library is to extend quality library and information services, generate funding for special materials and programs, and increase community awareness. The programs are funded by memberships which start at $20 for individuals ($10 for senior citizens).
