Total Solar Eclipse 2024

The Eclipse is coming! What makes this one so special? This eclipse is the only one in the 21st century where totality will be visible in large parts of North America, from Mexico to Canada.

Eclipse Glasses

The Library will be giving away eclipse glasses for viewing the eclipse.

  • Glasses will be available starting on April 1.

For your safety, it is recommended to verify that your solar filter glasses are from a safe and trusted source.
