The Lisle Library District will have a viewing party to celebrate the rare solar eclipse that will occur Monday, Aug. 21.

Starting at 9:30 a.m., the library's Connection Desk will provide a complimentary pair of solar eclipse glasses to patrons (one per person). Only a limited quantity will be available on first-come, first-served basis with Lisle Library District residents given first preference.


Patrons also can join a viewing party after the eclipse begins at 11:53 a.m. until the end of the eclipse at 2:42 p.m. The first 50 individuals present also will receive complimentary viewing glasses.

The viewing party will be on the reading patio in the south parking lot at the library, 777 Front St., Lisle.

The partial solar eclipse will occur at 1:19 p.m. This is a rare celestial event, since the next solar eclipse won't take place until 2024.

For information, call (630) 971-1675.
