Solar Eclipse

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. In Minnesota, we will be able to observe a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun’s disk.

ECRL branches have a limited supply of solar eclipse glasses.  They are first come, first served. We will post updates here as supplies are depleted.

The Chisago Lakes Area Library will also be having a Solar Eclipse Viewing Party from 11-1.  Come join us!

Current Status (as of 10:10am Saturday 9/19):

OUT OF GLASSES:  Aitkin, Cambridge, Hinckley, Mille Lacs Lake, Mora, North Branch, Pine City, Princeton, Rush City, Sandstone and Wyoming branches NO LONGER have solar eclipse glasses.

LIMITED AMOUNTS REMAIN: Chisago Lakes, McGregor, Milaca

Don’t have glasses?  You can watch safely via NASA’s live stream or print your own Pinhole Projector.  Other activities and many more resources are available on the NASA Eclipse 2017 website.
