Star Trek



Space: the final frontier.
These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.
 Its five-year mission:
to explore strange new worlds,
to seek out new life and new civilizations,
to boldly go where no man has gone before.
Any Trekkie fans out there? Star Trek: The Original Series was a television show produced between 1966 and 1969. It introduced space and technology as never seen before on television and became a cult classic. The Star Trek franchise has produced 5 spin-off television shows, 12 feature films, and numerous book series.

On August 19th, we celebrate the birthday of Gene Roddenberry, the iconic creator of the Star Trek franchise. To celebrate, the library will have a Star Trek trivia bookmark available for pick up at all three branches to test your Star Trek knowledge. We will also be posting Star Trek trivia on our Facebook page - be on the lookout for that! The LEGO club also plans to have a Star Trek theme for one of its meetings - stay tuned!
