On the Waterfront

A Total Eclipse of the Sun!

On Monday August 21, 2017 a rare, total eclipse of the Sun will be visible across the width of the continental United States for the first time since 1918. What does this mean? It meas that every state in the lower 48 will have at least 60% of the Sun covered by the Moon and millions of lucky folks on a path from Oregon to South Carolina will experience a total eclipse of the Sun. The Sturm Memorial Library intends to celebrate this event with an Elipse party and in anticipation we've applied for a free "Elipse Kit" from STAR_Net's NASA@ My Library which will include 200 pair of eclipse glasses that will allow safe viewing of the partial eclipse. (Sadly, Wisconsin is not on the path for the total Eclipse) This initiative is going to distriubte up to 2 million glasses to libraries across the country to assist in programs centered around the Eclipse. Let's hope Manawa is one of Libraries to get some of these glasses. Stay tuned for further details and mark your calendars.
