Viola Public Library is pleased to announce that it is 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 August 21, 2017.
The Viola Public Library and the Epitaph-News will be holding an eclipse viewing event at the Epitaph-News, 116 E Commercial St, Viola, WI, on Monday, August 21 from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. You may pick up eclipse information and viewing glasses at the library before the event, or there may be limited glasses available during the event. Refreshments will be provided. For further information, visit the Viola Public Library at 137 S Main St., Viola, WI, during open hours.
Viola Public Library has joined the STAR Library Education Network (STAR_Net) and its NASA@ My Library initiative. Partners include NASA, the American Library Association, and many other organizations. This project was made possible through support from the NASA Science Mission Directorate, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Google, and the National Science Foundation.
