Want to learn how to safely watch the eclipse through safety glasses? Or how to build a pin-hole projector?
That’s the subject of a Saturday, Aug. 19 gathering at 1 p.m. at the Lake Park Library, 529 Park Avenue, said Lake Park Librarian Judie Cooper.
On Monday starting at 1 p.m. an eclipse gathering is planned at the Lake Park library. Light refreshments will be served. Viewers can either watch the eclipse outside or from inside the library. A monitor will be streaming the NASA station showing the eclipse.
Cooper, who has friends in Columbia Missouri which is in the area of totality, plans to call her friends during the eclipse. Listeners will get a play-by-play description.
“I’m hoping they can tell us give us how dark it is, how the animals react and other reactions,” said Cooper.
Both Lake Park events are free and open to the public.
