Synopsis

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who is inspired to leave the safety and security of her island on a daring journey to save her people.

Together, they voyage across the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills her quest and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.

Join us for the Great American Total Solar Eclipse! 

A total solar eclipse will darken the skies from Oregon to South Carolina.

Here in the Bay Area we will experience a Partial Eclipse.  

Approximately 76% of the Sun will be covered by the moon.  

Between 9:01 a.m. - 11:37 a.m. will be the peak viewing hours.

The library won't be open, but we will fill up the parking lot with eclipse gazers and

you will be able to view the eclipse safely with specially made lenses for solar viewing.

 

REMEMBER: Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon, can cause serious eye damage or blindness

NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection . See our complete guide to find out how to view the eclipse safely
