With these words, Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong became the first human being to set foot upon the Moon, on July 21st, 1969, 02:56:15 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time — i.e. Greenwich Mean Time), or 9:56:15 PM Central Time (July 20th). One of the most significant human accomplishments in history came about as the result of the work of over 400,000 people, in the U.S. and abroad. It was the result of a goal established by President John F. Kennedy, in speeches in 1962, in which he insisted that the United States would place a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth, before the 1960s ended.
“We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”
The journey to reach that goal was filled with technological challenges, danger and risk. It was launched in the middle of a cold war with the Soviet Union, who had beaten the U.S. to several key steps in the “space race” — first orbiting satellite, first man in space, and more — and ultimately resulted in six manned moon landings, and 12 men (all from the United States) who walked on the surface of the Moon.
This “booklist”, created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 in 2019, includes books in both print and digital editions, as well as DVDs and a unique microfilm archive of Apollo 11 stories. The materials in this list are aimed at both adults and youth (although we stop short of including picture books and “easy readers”). In addition to the wealth of materials currently in the Lincoln City Libraries collection, all of which are hot-linked into our on-line catalog below, we include (at the bottom of the list) a list of additional reading materials (many highly recommended) that are not currently in the Lincoln City Libraries’ collection. If you are interested in any of those, please consider using our InterLibrary Loan Service to order them from other libraries around the U.S. at a minimal cost.
This list is primarily comprised of non-fiction about the U.S. space program during the Mercury (1958-1963), Gemini (1961-1966) and Apollo (1961-1972) programs, but also includes some additional titles that carry you up through the U.S. Space Shuttle program (1981-2011) and era of the International Space Station (1998-present). This list is not an exhaustive list of everything in the libraries’ collection about space exploration, but should contain everything we have on Project Apollo and the pre-Apollo days of NASA, plus selected titles from other eras. For your convenience, here is an index to the major sections of this list:
Items in both the Adult Non-Fiction and Apollo Materials Not in the LCL Collection portions of this list, which are marked with this small NASA icon, were titles recommended by NASA staff. Their list of recommendations, available at the link above, was compiled by Roger D. Launius and J.D. Hunley of the NASA History Office. You can find detailed descriptions of each of those books on their “Project Apollo: A Selective Bibliography of Books” list at that link.
Most of the titles we have listed here in this Adult Non-Fiction portion of this page, including the Biographies, are focused on the Apollo and pre-Apollo era of NASA.
