A Certified Lunar Librarian

The new exhibit at the Plymouth (MA) Public Library is so out of this world Margaret McGrath needed a special certification from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to handle it. McGrath, the library’s youth services librarian, is now a certified lunar librarian.

For the next two weeks she will carry a special NASA briefcase with her most everywhere she goes. The briefcase, kept locked overnight at police headquarters, contains half a dozen samples of moon rocks and six more fragments of meteorites.

Wicked Local reports on this special program to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the moon landing with the loan of moon rocks to schools and public libraries.
