As we update sections and buy books for assignments sometimes we get a few books on a topic all at once. We recently had that happen with our section on astronauts. While it may not be as flashy as the recent car in space…

These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
