Dr. Tom Crouch will present “The National Air and Space Museum Turns 30: The Past and Present of the World’s Most-Visited Museum” at 7:30 p.m. on April 26 at the annual meeting of the Friends of the Burke Centre Library. This free event will be held at the Commons Community Center at 5701 Roberts Parkway in Burke.
Crouch, an award-winning author, has been with the Smithsonian since 1974 and has served as a curator and administrator for both the National Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of American History.
The Burke Centre Library is one of two new branches being built with bond funds that were approved by Fairfax County voters in 2004. The groundbreaking ceremony for this new branch is scheduled for July 29, and construction will begin this fall.
