Solar Eclipse

On the afternoon of August 21, 2017, U.S. residents can experience a solar eclipse when the sun disappears behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight. With a generous donation from STAR_Net, the library has been provided with solar viewing glasses*, which will be handed out to library users in a number of branch locations, allowing them to view the solar eclipse safely. Because we are in Florida, only a partial eclipse will be seen, beginning at 1:27 p.m. and continuing until 4:21 p.m. Viewing conditions will also vary depending on the weather.

*Due to the limited number of safe viewing glasses received, the library does not have any glasses left for general public distribution.
