NASA @ My Library

The New Brunswick Free Public Library is one of 60 libraries nationwide to be part of the NASA @ My Library initiative! We look forward to introducing STEAM concepts to our younger patrons and to exploring the universe together with people of all ages during our public programs in 2021 and 2022.

We are pleased to present several programs in December 2021:

  • On Wednesday, December 8, at 7:00 p.m. (with rain/cloud dates of December 9 or 10), we invite everyone to join us outside the library for Telescope Night presented by Pearl Observatory. We will view mountains and craters on the moon, Jupiter and its clouds and moons, and Saturn and its rings. Register at*

  • From Monday, December 13, to Thursday, December 16, we'll be celebrating Space Week at the library. View events presented by the Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium live-streamed to the library's movie screen (snacks will be provided) or view them from home. Register at*

  • Saturday, December 18 is Launch Day, from 2:00 to 4 p.m. Celebrate the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope with an afternoon of space activities, including crafts, stories, and snacks. Register at
