Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

12:00 PM - 03:00 PM

eclipse


Scoville Park
800 Lake St
Oak Park, IL 60301

Join the Oak Park Public LIbrary to safely experience the celestial event of the century while celebrating the end of summer! We'll make pinhole projectors, try out a science experiment, listen to a live band from School of Rock, and more in Scoville Park (outside the Main Library). We'll even have special eclipse glasses to give away on the day of the event. Wearing special eclipse glasses (not regular sunglasses) is one way to safely view the eclipse. Read more about safe solar viewing practices from Adler Planetarium >

The maximum eclipse will occur at 1:20 p.m. Our rain or cloud location will be the Main Library Veterans Room, where we'll live-stream the eclipse as it moves across the country.
