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.
We will explore how reading and writing go hand in hand to build a better YOU.
Participants will make a story starter and create their own story. Also, meet published authors who have written more than one book; all before middle school.
All ages welcomed.
Light refreshments will be served.
