NASA & American Library Association Kickoff National Exhibit
NASA and the American Library Association (ALA) kick off a one-of-a-kind interactive space research exhibit Tuesday, July 1, at 11 a.m. EDT at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore.

The interactive exhibit features special presentations specifically created for parents and children. The program is designed to help inspire students to pursue science and space-related careers, as the exhibit tours the nation's public libraries over the next two years.

The NASA/ALA partnership creates "NASA @ your library," a unique program designed to introduce and expose the public to NASA research in health; home and transportation; agriculture and environment; and commerce. The partnership is also designed to increase interest in our nation's public libraries.

Media interested in attending the ceremony should contact Mona Rock of the Enoch Pratt Free Library at 410/396-5283.

NASA Television will broadcast the event live. NASA TV is broadcast on AMC-2, transponder 9C, C-Band, located at 85 degrees west longitude. The frequency is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical and audio is monaural at 6.8 MHz.

Internet users can watch the telecast online by going to the NASA Home Page.
