We would like to thank everyone who helped with the library’s eclipse viewing event on Monday! Children’s/youth librarian Chris found out about the eclipse glasses and obtained them for us. He set up the NASA live-stream of the total eclipse path and helped children make pinhole projectors out of paper and cardboard. Special thanks to John Maberry (find him on Goodreads and Amazon) and Beth Randolph (find her on Goodreads and Amazon) for reading and presenting fascinating eclipse science and history! Thanks also to Mary Beth and Jason of Literacy Link-Leamos for roaming the crowd outside to make sure that everyone got plenty of chances to view the eclipse through the glasses.
We ran out of informational handouts, and some participants asked about accessing them after the event. You may download them for personal reference here:
Finally, thank you to everyone who came to the library to get eclipse glasses and to participate in this exciting astronomical event!
