IMPORTANT UPDATE: Eclipse Viewing

When: 
Monday, August 21, 2017 - 11:30am
Where: 
Rotary Park Gazebo

UPDATE: Looks like we have a cloudy, rainy day ahead of us. The library will be live-streaming the eclipse feed from NASA from 11:30am-3pm. Come by and watch on our big screen down in the Carnegie Room! (Note: if the video is unavailable due to too many viewers overloading the feed, this is beyond our control. Apologies in advance in case of technology failure!)

Thanks to Ralph Winrich, the library received a small amount of eclipse glasses. We will drop them off at the Gazebo at 11:30am. Since a cloudy day is forecast, we will not remain at the Gazebo. Please note: we do not advise filming the eclipse to watch it, as the rays can damage your camera. Please do not look directly at the eclipse as it can damage your eyes. Please be aware when experiencing the eclipse with small children, as it may be difficult to keep them from looking directly at the sun.

We are happy to offer a safe way to enjoy the eclipse as a community via the livestream in the Carnegie Room. Many thanks to the Rotary Park for allowing use of the Gazebo. We regret that the weather isn't cooperating!
