The Cottage Grove Library display was quite a success, and it inspired us to do a little rearranging here at the History Center. The Jenny model you see in the header needed a little repair (and more than a little dusting), and we noticed other models that could use a touch up here and there, so we are glad to have taken them down for the display.
We put the posters on “How Do Things Fly” and “A Century of Discovery” near our small model display case, at an eye level appropriate for young people. And we carved out a little space in the library for a display called, “Oregonians in the Space Program,” which could really use a scale model of the space shuttle to look finished (hint, hint).
Thanks to the City of Cottage Grove for their help in moving the engines and to the Cottage Grove Public Library for their encouragement and willingness to let us take over their space for six weeks. Now to start thinking about what to do next year!
