Wilson Public Library has joined more than 1,000 libraries across the country to participate in the celestial event of the century, the August 21st, 2017 Solar Eclipse. During this national event, the shadow of the moon will sweep across the United States in a narrow band from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in a spectacle that hasn't occurred in decades. In fact, the last total solar eclipse for the United States was nearly 40 years ago. 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.
This will be a great opportunity for our community to celebrate science, with fun, hands-on and multimedia activities, culminating in the eclipse event on August 21st, 2017.
Wilson Public Library received a grant of 1,000 pairs of eclipse glasses.
Wilson Public Library is located at 910 Meridian. Our eclipse programs are free and open to the public during library hours, Monday-Thursday 10-7, Friday 10-5, Saturday 10-1.
