Palisadians looking forward to viewing a partial solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21, should head to the Palisades Branch Library, where they’ll be handing out a limited number of special viewing glasses in the parking lot starting at 8:45 a.m.
Guests are invited to bring snacks, water and lawn chairs to enjoy the view with friends and family around 10:21 a.m.
