These Dallas Public Library Branches Are Hosting Viewing Parties for the Solar Eclipse Monday

The much-anticipated solar eclipse will take place in Dallas and will begin on Monday, August 21st at about 11:50 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. Fun fact: the last time a total solar eclipse was viewable from the United States was when Jimmy Carter was President. The Sun will appear at approximately 1 p.m. on the day of the eclipse. Although we are not in the so-called “path of totality”, about 75% of the Sun will be occluded by the Moon.

Dallas Public Library will be hosting viewing parties at the Central branch, North Oak Cliff branch, Audelia Road branch, and White Rock Hills Branch. These events include a livestream from NASA, outdoor viewing with special solar eclipse glasses. See below for more info.
