El Paso Public Library to Host Eclipse Viewing Events Monday

The El Paso Public Library invites the public to celebrate the total eclipse of the sun at 11 a.m. on Monday, August 21, at three library branches: Armijo, Dorris Van Doren and José Cisneros.

The three branches will hand out official eclipse viewers to visitors who attend (while supplies last). The celebration includes stories and other activities.

The eclipse viewers are being distributed through the library by The STAR Library Network (STAR Net), with support from the Moore Foundation, Google, NASA, the Research Corporation, and NSF.

They have distributed more than 2-million safe eclipse glasses to 7,000 unique locations including public library branches, bookmobiles, tribal libraries, library consortia, and state libraries in all 50 states.

Armijo Library, 620 E. 7th Street, (915) 212-0369

Dorris Van Doren Library, 551 Red Rd., (915) 875-0700
