Parents and children are invited to join Tara for “Let the Sun Shine In,” a Story Hour about the Solar Eclipse on Thursday, August 17 at 10:30 a.m. We’ll read The Big Eclipse: A Story About Eclipse Viewing Safety, share nacho snacks and make crafts. Learn more about the partial solar eclipse that will be visible from Adams County on Monday, August 21 about 2:30 p.m. when the moon passes between the sun and the earth.

Join us at the West Union Library on Monday, August 21 at 2:00 p.m. for an Eclipse Viewing Party!
“On Monday, August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible in the continental United States. This total eclipse will only be visible on a narrow track stretching across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. No other country will get to see the total eclipse this time.
The rest of the United States and other parts of North and Central America will see a partial eclipse, in which the Moon covers only a portion of the Sun. A partial eclipse is interesting, but nowhere near as awe-inspiring and memorable as a total eclipse. A partial eclipse is also dangerous to look at without something to protect your eyes from the Sun’s damaging rays.”
Join us at the West Union Library, where we’ll learn more about the solar eclipse, paint a sun catcher, learn about viewing an eclipse safely, and then don eclipse-viewing safety glasses to watch the solar eclipse outside the library. Call Tara at 937-544-2591 for more information. Read more at Starnet Libraries.
