The Eclipse is Coming!

On August 21 the sun will go out. At least part way, and for a couple hours (unless you head south to where they will experience total eclipse). So Candor Library is getting ready to celebrate this not-everyday event. We have new books about stars and eclipses, folk tales and science... even Curious George!

To get ready for the eclipse, the library is hosting two events:
 Saturday, August 19 - we'll be at the “Feed the 5,000” event at the Candor Fire Hall pavilion. From 12 noon to 2 p.m. you'll find us at a table sharing activities and information about the solar eclipse. Come decorate your own solar-viewing glasses, make a pinhole viewer, learn what the eclipse is all about, and take home some prizes.

Monday, August 21 - join us for a Solar Eclipse party at the library from 1 – 3 p.m. If you have solar eclipse glasses and viewers, bring them – or make some here. Decorate solar cookies, watch the eclipse, and do some hands-on science. If it rains, the party will move inside and we’ll watch the eclipse via a feed from NASA.
