This week’s display is inspired by the Wright Brothers.

On this day in 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright took flight for 12 seconds in Kitty Hawk, NC.

Visit the YA Room to check out books about flight whether is the realistic or fantastical.

While there is debate on whether or not the Wright Brothers were the first to fly, they are most famous and well-publicized example of the budding field of aviation.
