Read to the Moon and Back All Summer Long

When Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin flew to the moon, they were traveling in outer space for 11,719 minutes. Do you think that we can work together to read for that long? Follow your and your friends progress on the space map in the library all summer long!
