Books


Choose a planet and search for it in the library’s catalog: www.deschuteslibrary.org/catalog. You will find information about each planet and its moons, if it has them!

Example: Neptune by Josepha Sherman has a chapter called “Neptune’s Strange Moons and Rings”


Online Resources


The library also has a lot of great resources you can use through our website. They are called databases, and you can find them here: http://www.deschuteslibrary.org/onlineresources. Scroll down to the category called “Homework” and you’ll find:

-> The World Book Encyclopedia (search for “moons”)

-> Kid’s Info Bits (choose Science and Math, then Space and Astronomy)

You will need your library card to use these resources unless you are in the public library.
