Partial Eclipse - Viewing Party!
On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of us in North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun!
While we won't see a total eclipse in Oakland, we'll get to see a partial eclipse.
Come view this spectacular event with other library patrons at the Main Library.
Please note that looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon in a partial eclipse, can cause serious eye damage or blindness. NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection. We'll have safe viewing glasses available at this viewing party! You can also pick them up from Mana at the Main Library if you want to view the partial eclipse at home.
