Program Description

Event Details

Join us on the east lawn of the library to watch the solar eclipse! We will have two telescopes with solar filters for safe viewing of the eclipse on April 8. Library staff will be out with the telescopes from 12:30-3:15. Peak viewing time for the eclipse in our region is 1:56pm. Siouxland will see the eclipse reach 70-80% totality.

If you haven't picked up your eclipse glasses, we will have around 100 eclipse glasses to hand out, while supplies last.

Hope to see you there!



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.

Photo Permission

Staff often take pictures during library programs. The library uses photos in its publicity, in social media, and on its website. If I do not want my photo used, I will contact Heidi at and the library will honor that request.
