We are planning a day of science and fun for kids and adults alike to provide a place for our community to learn about what happens during the eclipse, as well as to learn the safe viewing methods as provided by the National Science Teachers Association! A selection of scientific reading materials for children, teens, and adults will be featured throughout the library, with a particular focus on astronomy and the 2017 eclipse specifically. All members of our community are invited to take part in safe eclipse viewing at the library. The eclipse is expected to be observable in our region starting at about 1:20 pm, and ending at about 4:00 pm, reaching its maximum eclipse at 2:45 pm (maximum eclipse in our region will be 71% coverage of the sun). As our supply of eclipse glasses have been given out, patrons must bring their own glasses or viewers.
