For Librarians and Friends Groups

For the 2019 SRP Space and Showtime themes, we will present:

My Mother The Astronaut

To the moon and beyond!

Aquarius' mom is an astronaut and today is "Take
your child to work day". Aquarius can't wait to go
to NASA and find out what it's like to be in space!

They visit Mission Control where she meets
scientists and engineers who show her what
they do and she learns all about space travel.
Her imagination blasts off and she dreams
of incredible journeys through the cosmos!

We are especially excited about the space theme because KB’s Dad, Robert D. Mercer, was one of the men who got us to the Moon. Please read his bio here. Bob Mercer and his family built one of the first homes across from the brand new NASA Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Texas in the early 60’s.

Here is a picture of him on the deck of an aircraft carrier after splashdown recovering a space capsule (the young man in back), and a picture of a flag presented to him that went to the moon on Apollo 16.

A number of these flags were put in the wall of the orbiting module and brought back as a thank you to the people who worked on the mission. This flag is a cherished item in the Mercer family, and we wish he was still here to see the show we wrote in his honor for SRP 2019!

Tales of the Scary Librarian

"...professional, prompt, great with the kids and adults and very, very reasonable. I highly recommend them to you.

Susan Schmidt, Previous FOLUSA President

“A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen, instead.”

--Caitlin Moran
