Solar eclipse max view in Menomonie

Solar Eclipse

On August 21 the first total eclipse of the sun since 1979 will occur in the U.S.  While we won’t see a total eclipse here in Menomonie, it will be 85% eclipsed and still exciting to watch.   Join us at the library to view the eclipse.  We will have a limited supply of NASA approved “eclipse glasses” available the day of the eclipse beginning at 11:40 a.m. (limit one per-person until supply is gone) which allow you to look at the sun directly without damaging your eyes.
