NCompass Live: Solar Eclipse 2017 @ Your Library

2017 Solar Eclipse PosterJoin us for the next NCompass Live, ‘Solar Eclipse 2017 @ Your Library’, on Wednesday, July 26, 10:00am – 11:00am CT.

Is your library ready for the solar event of the century? In just over 5 weeks, on August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the United States. The sight of the fully eclipsed Sun will be visible along a 70-mile-wide path arching from Oregon to South Carolina, and Nebraska will be one of the BEST places in the country to view it!

This episode of NCompass Live will talk about the Eclipse itself, eclipse resources, programming and activity ideas, and what other libraries around the state are doing for this historic event.

Presenter: Mary Sauers, Government Information Services Librarian, Nebraska Library Commission; Megan Boggs, Seward (NE) Memorial Library; Shelley Ruterbories, Lincoln City Libraries.
