Event Details

Solar Eclipse Glasses WILL be handed out at our Total Solar Eclipse Party on August 21 starting at 10:30 am – one set of glasses per person (must be physically present) – while supplies last! These Glasses were generously purchased by the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library. Our Library System is one of 75 libraries nationwide to win the NASA@My Library grant, so join us as we celebrate an incredibly unique event as a community:  the Total Solar Eclipse! Everyone is invited to drop in to this event to gather for the live nationwide streaming of the Eclipse on our big screen with surround sound! We’ll be watching the Live Stream, perusing our new astronomy books purchased by the Friends of the Library, and, if so inclined, making our own Solar Eclipse viewers (bring your own cereal box!). As we are in the 90% area of totality, we will eagerly await the Eclipse occurring roughly before 3 pm! Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

“The NASA@MyLibrary project is led by the National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Science Institute. Partners include the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, Pacific Science Center, Cornerstones of Science, and Education Development Center. NASA@MyLibrary is made possible through the support of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate as part of its STEM Activation program.”
