Monday, August 21- 1-4 we will be handing out free eclipse glasses and hope to be able to view it from the library lawn!

Indian Lake may not be the best place to view the eclipse, but we have glasses for safe viewing  so let’s get together for some fun. The moon will pass between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun for three hours. The day will get cooler. Best viewing here begins at at 1:20 PM, peaks at 2:40, over by 3:50 PM. Come at one, get your glasses and learn more about the world around you. Snacks and crafts are planned. An outside event!

PUBLIC LIBRARIES ADVANCING COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT is a program that has been described as “book club meets science cafe”.  The Indian Lake Library will be participating in a series of community programs, open to all, (teens to adults) to consider the local impact of climate change to develop local adaptation strategies.  Using book discussions, videos and the expertise of meteorologists, we will discuss different ways to think about and react to change.  Our first meeting to discuss “Zeitoun” by Dave Eggers has been postponed until October 4th because of scheduling conflicts, BUT our NOAA meteorologist promises weather tracking training as an added bonus for our October 16 book discussion on water rights based on the book, “The Water Knife” by Paolo Bacigalupi.  The final program is scheduled for November 9th with “Odds Against Tomorrow” by Nathaniel Rich.  All programs begin at 6 PM, are free and refreshments will be served. Registration is suggested, books are at the library.
