Library Celebrates Solar Eclipse

WHAT: The Murrieta Public Library is pleased to announce that it is joining more than 1,000 libraries across the country to participate in the celestial event of the century, the August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse. During this national event, the shadow of the moon will sweep across the United States from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in a spectacle that hasn't occurred in decades. The rest of the U.S. and North America will see a partial eclipse, with the Moon covering up only part of the Sun. It is aptly named the Great American Eclipse.

WHEN: The solar eclipse event takes place August 21, 2017 at 10:00 AM

WHERE: Murrieta Public Library’s Garden of Verses, 8 Town Square, Murrieta, CA 92562 

WHY: Getting people interested in science can be a challenge, but this event will be a great opportunity for our community to celebrate science with fun, hands-on and activities culminating in the eclipse event on August 21, 2017.  A special presentation will be given by the Temecula Valley Astronomers and free solar eclipse viewing glasses will be provided to the first 200 participants!


WHO: Murrieta Public Library has joined the STAR Library Education Network (STAR_Net) and its NASA@ My Library initiative. Partners include Temecula Valley Astronomers, NASA, the American Library Association, and many other organizations.This project was made possible through support from the NASA Science Mission Directorate, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Google, and the National Science Foundation.
