On. Aug. 21 a total eclipse of the sun will be visible across the United States. This is the first time in almost 40 years we have had the opportunity to view such a phenomenon. A viewing area in our parking lot at the library will be available from 10:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Be sure to bring your lawn chairs, sun screen, and water! Reservations are required for the sack lunch, which begins at 11:15 am. Tickets must be picked up by Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. to reserve the sack lunch. A limited number of viewing glasses will be available on that day.
