Total Eclipse of the Heart

Have you ever considered what it would be like to travel back in time? I imagine being excited and terrified. In Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court the main character finds himself in a bit of a sticky situation. Thankfully he being from the future knew that a solar eclipse was going to occur during the time he was in. For the rest of the story come by The Center for the Reader and check out the book. This year we are fortunate enough to experience a solar eclipse on August 21st. For more information go to The last total solar eclipse we had was on July 7 of 1972. We have plenty of new books and old that will teach you about solar eclipses that you can find in our Science and Technology department Chronology of Eclipses and Comets, AD 1-1000 By Schove, D. Justin. Find biographies on those who made important scientific discoveries regarding solar and lunar eclipses in the Entertainment, Literature, and Biography department. Consider going to the Social Sciences room for mythology and spirituality related to the sun and moon. We have so much we want to share with you here at Central Library to help you prepare for the total solar eclipse on August 21st!
