Solar Eclipse Viewing - LIVE!

NO SPECIAL GLASSES REQUIRED! Visit the Parklands-Turner Library at 1 p.m. on Monday, August 21 to enjoy NASA's live-stream broadcast of the 2017 American Solar Eclipse. This event will be shown on the big screen in a main area of the library branch. The DC area will only enjoy approximately 85% coverage of the sun by the moon, and it will be dangerous to view the eclipse directly without special equipment. Patrons at this event will enjoy a safe view of eclipse coverage from within the 100% zone, while seated in the air-conditioned comfort indoors at the library.
