ELGIN, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago library is one of only eight libraries nationwide selected to present an interactive traveling exhibit on space exploration.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1H5xwNy ) Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin will host a three-month exhibit titled “Discover Space: Exploring Our Solar System and Beyond.”

It’s one of three space-related exhibits that will be at libraries across the country between April 2016 and March 2018.

The American Library Association selected the Elgin library from 93 proposals. It’s the only library in Illinois to receive an exhibit.

“Discover Space” will feature nine interactive units, including a meteorite collection and a “Mission to Mars” kiosk.

Lainie Castle of the American Library Association says the organization will announce which dates the exhibit will be in Elgin by Aug. 15.
