Pittsburgh connections to Apollo 11 library event’s topic

CRANBERRY TWP — Cranberry Public Library, 2525 Rochester Road, will host a curator from the Heinz History Center for a program about the Pittsburgh region’s contributions to the space race.

Curator Emily Ruby will present “From Pittsburgh to the Moon,” at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 30, a presentation that will look back at the history of the Apollo 11 mission and its Pittsburgh connections.

In 2019, the History Center was one of four museums in the country to host the national touring exhibition “Destination Moon” for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. While hosting the exhibition, the History Center uncovered information about how people and companies from Western Pennsylvania contributed to the mission.

Those interested in attending must register in advance, either online at the library’s website or by calling the library at 724-776-9100.
