Cuyahoga County Public Library’s Parma-South Branch (7335 Ridge Road) has been chosen as one of only 40 libraries in the U.S. (and the only library in Ohio) to host the exciting new traveling exhibit “Visions of the Universe: Four Centuries of Discovery” from Monday, October 5 through Saturday, November 14, 2009. “Visions of the Universe” celebrates the evolution of astronomy from Galileo Galilei’s first use of an astronomical telescope in 1609 to the present day. The exhibit uses historical drawings and diagrams made by Galileo and other early astronomers, along with dramatic images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and other space missions, to illustrate how our understanding of the universe has changed over four centuries. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular hours of operation. “Visions of the Universe” is presented by the Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, Maryland; the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Cambridge, Massachusetts; and the American Library Association, Chicago, through funding from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The traveling exhibit is part of the International Year of Astronomy (IYA), a global celebration during 2009 of astronomy and its contributions to society and culture, highlighted by the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s achievement. In the U.S., the goal during IYA is to offer an engaging astronomy experience to every person in the country. The Parma-South Branch is offering free programs and other events for all ages in conjunction with the exhibit.
