To ensure you have viewing glasses, bring your own.) and the low-tech pinhole camera as well as a variety of informational activities and children’s crafts related to the eclipse. You’re invited to the library’s main gallery, children’s library – and the solar eclipse viewing on the pedestrian bridge outside the library for this unique experience, sponsored by the Blount County Friends of the Library.
