The County-City Library is joining more than 1,000 libraries across the country to participate in the celestial event of the century, the August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse. During this national event, the shadow of the moon will sweep across the United States in a narrow band from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in a spectacle that hasn’t occurred in nearly 40 years. It is aptly named the Great American Eclipse. We will have information displayed in the community room the week before, August 14th – 19th, to better understand what is to be expected of the event.

The public is encouraged to come to the County-City Library on August 21 and receive a free pair of safe viewing glasses to watch the eclipse. They are being distributed one per person on a first come first serve basis while supplies last. The library will have live-coverage of the eclipse as it crosses the United States and light refreshments in the community room. There will also be facts and information for the public to learn about this historic event. For more information, call the library at (325) 235-4978.
