Watch the Solar Eclipse at the Library, August 21st!

Join us next Monday, August 21st from 12:30 to 2:30 at Gazebo Park next to the library for our Solar Eclipse Watch (weather permitting!).  Eclipse facts books, crafts, and free solar glasses will be available until supplies run out. You'll also be able to make your own pinhole projector, another way to safely to view the eclipse. 

MAXIMUM ECLIPSE OCCURS AT 1:12 PM; Boscobel will experience @ 85% of "totality", meaning that in our area approximately 85 percent of the sun will be hidden behind the moon during the eclipse.

Remember: At NO TIME is it safe to look directly at a solar eclipse with the naked eye. Regular Sunglasses won't provide the needed level of filtering to protect your or your children's eyes!  Read Eye Safety Information
