Meherrin Regional Library offers free eclipse viewing glasses to patrons

The Meherrin Regional Library System has joined more than 1,000 libraries across the country to participate in the celestial event of the century, the August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse. During this nationwide event, the moon will pass between the earth and the sun, causing total or partial darkness throughout the U.S.

In Brunswick and Greensville counties, the eclipse will begin around 1:15 PM, reach maximum obscurity around 2:45 PM, and end around 4:00 PM.

Because Virginia will only experience a partial eclipse, those wishing to view it must wear protective eyewear that can filter out light and prevent damage to their eyes. There is no point where the eclipse will be safe to view directly without a solar filter.

Beginning August 14, 2017, Brunswick County Library in Lawrenceville and Richardson Memorial Library in Emporia will offer a free pair of eclipse viewing glasses and safe viewing info to patrons when they use their library card. Supply is limited, however, and will be on a first come, first served basis.

For more information, stop by or call the Brunswick County Library at (434) 848-2418 x301, or Richardson Memorial Library at (434) 634-2539 or visit www.meherrinlib.org.
