The Great American Eclipse

Monday's eclipse was truly historic and the library was proud to be a part of the action. Thanks to a grant from Star-Net, NASA, The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Research Corporation for Science Advancement, and Google we were able to distribute solar glasses so our community could safely view this epic event. We may not have been on the path of totality but the crowd gathered on the lawn didn't let that ruin their good time. We were treated to gorgeous solar views behind intermittent clouds that did nothing but make the eclipse even more beautiful. As peak coverage approached, the clouds parted to hoots and hollers to give us one last glance at the sun. The library would like to thank Matt DiDonato for teaching us all about solar astronomy and the Friends or the Library and Teen Advisory Board for volunteering at the event.
