The Dodge City Public Library will host the presentation of "One Giant Leap for Mankind - The First Moon Landing" at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 18.

The presentation will be delivered by Dodge City Community College science professor Sherry Curtis, who will share her knowledge of space exploration with background into the space race through to the first people walking on the moon as well as space exploration missions from Russia and the United States and beyond.

"On July 20, 1969, our world was changed forever when two people walked on the moon," Curtis said. "Come learn about the events and missions leading up to the Apollo Moon landing and what we have achieved in the last 50 years."

The "One Giant Leap for Mankind - The First Moon Landing" presentation will be held in the Lois Flanagan room of the DCPL, located at 1001 N. 2nd Avenue.

This event coincides with the DCPL summer reading theme Universe of Stories where the library has highlighted everything about space, planets, stars, and aliens for everyone to choose from.
