On August 21st 2017 a Solar Eclipse will be visible from ALL of North America. The last time the contiguous United States saw a total Solar Eclipse was in 1979 where 4 states in the Northwest saw the Eclipse. The last time a Solar Eclipse was visible from ALL of North America was in 1918. Where you are located dictates whether you will see a total or a partial Solar Eclipse. Aldrich Astronomical Society member Kevin Boucher will explain what you will see depending on your location, why you don't see a solar eclipse during every new moon, and various options for how to safely view the eclipse. Kevin has also been accepted as a member of the Eclipse Megamovie project being initiated by solar scientists at Berkeley and a technical team from Google. Kevin will explain what this project is about and why it is so important to solar scientists. A drop-in program!

Come for the stories and songs, stay for the bubbles and toys!

This program will be held in the Children's Program Room.

This program is a free drop-in, however, we do require tokens for admission.   Tokens will be available at the Children's Room desk on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10 am on the day of the program and will be available until they run out (and/or the program has already begun). Every participant must have a token for admission.

Do you know how to play chess?

Are you age 6-10?

Join us in a game of chess! 

This is for players who already know the basic moves - this is not a beginner's class. 

While this is geared to 6-10 year olds, players up to age 18 (and their families) are welcome at the appropriate skill level. 

No registration required, this is a drop in program.
