The Center for Educational Partnerships, the Virginia Space Grant Consortium, the ODU Libraries, and the Slover Library present the 50th Anniversary Moon Landing Contest—“Voyages and Discoveries: Cross-Generational Reflections on the Significance of Space Exploration.” Applications EXTENDED through July 31st!
Clean Virginia Waterways, Keep Suffolk Beautiful, Suffolk Art League, and Suffolk Public Schools have partnered to collect the balloon debris that pollute the waterways of Virginia and transform them into beautiful sculptures. These larger-than-life works are a monument to the massive impact that the debris has on marine life and that “what goes up will come down.” On display in the Slover Library Forum, June – July.
Join author Charles T. Joyner as he discusses his book "Humble Hero", which reveals his father's unusual life of survival, first in Portsmouth, Virginia and then in the Army as part of the infamous nine-day Bataan Death March. Book sales and signing will follow the presentation.
