It is NOT safe to view the solar eclipse without proper protection! This August, the Marion Public Library will have free solar eclipse glasses for patrons.  Glasses will  be available on the following dates: 
  •  Thursday, August 3rd at 7 p.m. for attendees of the Safety Program.
  • Monday, August 14th through Sunday, August 20th at the Information Desk on a first-come basis during regular library hours
  • Monday, August 21st from 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. (before and during the Solar Eclipse Event)

We are hoping for clear skies, but no matter the weather, we will have a live-stream of the total eclipse showing in the library!
