On Monday August 21, for the first time in almost 100 years a solar eclipse will sweep across the landscape of the US from Oregon to South Carolina. On that day, effects of the eclipse, from total coverage of the sun to partial coverage, touch every state and our communities are going to be interested in what is happening up in the sky. State Library Agencies (SLAs) can play a central role in engaging their public libraries around this significant astronomical occurrence helping to prepare and enliven interest in this impactful event. Whether a library chooses to be involved on the day of the event and/or offers eclipse-programming leading up to the event, librarians as respected leaders in the community can offer guidance and resources.
