Getting Ready for the Solar Eclipses

Two solar eclipses are coming to North America! An annular eclipse occurs on Saturday, October 14, 2023, and a total eclipse occurs on Monday, April 8, 2024. 

Eclipse glasses will be available at some Timberland Libraries as part of related programs and activities in limited quantities while supplies last. Glasses have been generously provided by StarNet with support from The Space Science Institute and The Moore Foundation and are intended to be used with safety precautions.
