  • Meet Dr. Don Thomas, a real life retired moon man
On Tues. July 16 and Wed. July 17 you have six opportunities to meet retired NASA astronaut Dr. Don Thomas at six area libraries.

For those who don't religiously follow all things celestial, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. It was July 20, 1969 when two brave souls, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, took one small step and one giant leap for mankind.

While the CCPL can't send you to the moon or introduce you to Armstrong or Aldrin, they're doing the next best thing — bringing you the real life stories of retired NASA astronaut Dr. Thomas.

Thomas will share tales of his experience spending 44 days in space over the course of four different space shuttle missions.

Meet Thomas Tues. July 16 at 10 a.m. at Wando Library, 3 p.m. at Otranto Road Library, and 6 p.m. at Dorchester Library. Wed. July 17 he'll be at the Main Library at 9:30 a.m., followed by a trip to the Hurd/St. Andrews branch at noon, and Johns Island Library at 3 p.m.
