Program Description

Event Details

EACH REGISTERED PATRON WILL BE GIVEN 1 VIEWER. FOR MULTIPLE PEOPLE IN A HOUSEHOLD PLEASE REGISTER EACH PATRON. MAX 6 VIEWER PER HOUSEHOLD.  

LIMITED SUPPLY. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

 

Get your solar eclipse viewer at the Mokena Community Public Library! As we have a limited supply, reservations are required. 

Viewers may be picked up at the circulation desk. To avoid long waits, we advise patrons to pick up their viewer before the day of the eclipse. 

We have a mix of traditional eclipse glasses and eclipse card shades. Both will allow patron to safely view the eclipse, but patrons will NOT be able to pick which version they receive. 

 

SAFETY TIPS FOR VIEWING THE ECLIPSE

  • Always supervise children during the eclipse and remind them to keep their solar eclipse glasses on.
  • If you normally wear eyeglasses, keep them on and put your eclipse glasses on over them.
  • You should never look directly at the sun without appropriate eye protection.
  • Do not use sunglasses, Polaroid filters, certain welding glasses, exposed color film, X-ray film or photographic neutral-density filters to view a solar eclipse.
  • Staring directly at the sun can damage your eyes and cause vision loss, which is sometimes permanent.
  • Only use solar eclipse glasses and filters that comply with international standards.
  • The library’s eclipse glasses are approved for use based on these standards.
  • If you can’t go outside or don’t have appropriate eye protection, you can register to view the April 8, 2024 solar eclipse from NASA’s livestream here.
