Solar Eclipse information drop-in session at Shoreline Library Sunday

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Solar Eclipse Information Drop-In Session Sunday, August 20, 2017, 2-3:30pm at the Shoreline Library, 345 NE 175th, Shoreline 98155.

Shoreline Library is pleased to announce that they are joining more than 1,000 libraries across the country to participate in the celestial event of the century, the August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse.

During this national event, the shadow of the moon will sweep across the United States from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in a spectacle that hasn't occurred in decades. The rest of the U.S. and North America will see a partial eclipse, with the Moon covering up only part of the Sun. It is aptly named the Great American Eclipse.

The solar eclipse event takes place Monday, August 21, 2017.

The Shoreline Library will offer a drop-in information session where you can pick up a pair for free eclipse viewing glasses, view videos about the eclipse, and take home a Solar Eclipse Guide.

Join us outside the library at 9:45am on Monday morning, August 21, to view the eclipse, weather permitting. The eclipse will be at its peak at around 10:20am.

The Shoreline Library has joined the STAR Library Education Network (STAR_Net) and its NASA@ My Library project, which are providing resources and STEM activities to libraries across the nation related to the eclipse.

Partners include NASA, the American Library Association, the Girl Scouts, the SETI Institute and many other organizations. This project was made possible through support from the NASA Science Mission Directorate and the National Science Foundation.
