Monday, from 1 - 3 pm we'll have an eclipse-viewing party at the library. Bring your special solar eclipse glasses (we've got a few to give out) and if you made a cereal box or shoebox projector, bring it, too.
The safest way to watch the eclipse is to not look at the sun at all, but use a projector. You can make them out of boxes, mailing tubes, chip cans, paper plates, pizza box from the recycling bin, post card, a spiral notebook cover...
Want to make a projector out of a cereal box? Here's how.

IF you are looking for activities to do at home, you can download a copy of the Junior Ranger Eclipse Explorer booklet.
See you @ the library!
