On Monday, August 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible in some areas of the United States. A partial solar eclipse will be visible in South Florida.

Please note that eclipse glasses will be distributed only during eclipse‑themed events to library card holders and new library customers. Event registration is required. Please call or visit the branch to register. Quantities are limited. Limit one pair of solar eclipse glasses per library card holder.
