Solar Eclipse – Monday, April 8, 2024!

UPDATE 4/8/2024: We are out of eclipse glasses. Thank you to everyone for their interest. Please follow the safety guidelines listed below, and check out the resources listed for more information. 

You might be able to catch a partial solar eclipse in your own backyard on Monday, April 8, 2024 beginning at 12:51 p.m.!

It’s not every day you get a chance to see a partial solar eclipse and the library is prepared to help you watch it safely with a FREE solar eclipse viewer (one per person, please). The solar eclipse viewers were graciously donated to the library by a grant made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences grant.

You must always use proper solar viewing equipment when looking up at any type of solar eclipse. Regular sunglasses are NOT safe for viewing an eclipse, and irreversible eye damage can occur in seconds. Certified solar viewing glasses or viewers are the best way to protect your eyes so you can look up during an eclipse!

Please stop by the library between Monday, March 18 and Monday, April 8 to pick up your FREE viewer! One per person, please.
