See the Solar Eclipse at the Library's Block Party!

Since you're on the internet, chances are good that you've heard about the solar eclipse coming up in a couple of weeks. Although we aren't quite in the path of the total eclipse, on Monday, August 21, Polson will be able to see over 89% of the sun be blocked by the moon! Even with so much of the sun's light blocked, it is still dangerous to look at it directly. To provide a place for people to view this memorable event, the North Lake County Public Library is hosting an eclipse viewing party!

From 10 AM to 1 PM, everyone is welcome to come down to the library for this incredible celestial event! Attendees will be able to view the eclipse through safety glasses generously provided by Ronan Eye Clinic. The eclipse will begin at 10:16 AM, reach its maximum extent at 11:31, and end at 12:52 PM.

In addition to the excitement in the sky, there will also be events happening on the ground! For those with an appetite, the North Lake County Library Foundation will be simultaneously hosting a $5 hotdog lunch with all proceeds going toward the Family Summer Reading Program. Kids (and adults) that come to the event can enjoy crafts, educational displays, a photo booth, music, and more! Plus, the library will be holding a huge book sale in the meeting room until 5 PM.
