Here Comes the Sun: Eclipses in Upstate New York

We’ve got two solar eclipses on our horizon: an annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023 and a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. (The next time there will be a total solar eclipse visible in NYS is in 2079!) Eight FLLS libraries will be in the path of totality in 2024: Auburn, Cato, Fair Haven, Port Byron, Union Springs, Weedsport, Seneca Falls, and Waterloo. (Fair Haven will experience 3 minutes and 23 second of totality!)

Find out information for your location here.

Eclipses may be brief moments in time, but your library can offer interesting and engaging programming before, during, and after these two celestial events.
