A number of Ocean County Library system branches will host events where attendees can safely view Monday’s solar eclipse.

The libraries will provide “eclipse shades” and present a family-oriented program to learn more about the eclipse and view it safely. Library solar eclipse programs that are still accepting registration are:

  • Island Heights Branch, 121 Central Ave., 732-270-6266, 1:30 p.m. Monday, Aug 21 Watch the partial solar eclipse and play themed games. This is a children’s program that will be held at the Island Heights Pavilion.
  • Toms River Branch, 101 Washington St., 732-349-6200, 10:30 a.m. Monday, Aug 21 for a children’s craft as we prepare for the partial solar eclipse.
  • Little Egg Harbor Branch, 290 Mathistown Road, 609-294-1197, 2:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21. Get a free pair of glasses and watch the solar eclipse. There will be snacks and games. This is a Teen Program.

The programs are free and open to the public but registration is required. Eclipse shades are available for registered program participants.

    Too many pictures of him. Must be up for election again.

      Yep. And a smart lady too. A Taylor Swift role model perhaps. All hands accountable.

      • TJ&TAW

        No wedding rings on anybody.

      • Mac

        Rumor has it Vicari once accidentally touched the flag on his lapel with his ring finger causing the ring to instantly be burnt off, thus searing his ring finger to his wildly roving left palm.

    Notice what Town is not on the list? Brick. Check back when right after Toms River Renovation was completed Brick was next on the list. It was to be greatly enlarged. The parking lot was to be enlarged thence accommodating the huge crowd which seeks to use these facilities for public gatherings such as this and for Civic gatherings. Very quietly all these plans were scrapped for an expensive redecorating of this tiny space.

    Would viewing through a cellphone camera damage the sensor?

    • Mac

      Are you asking about eclipse or Vicari damage to the cellphone camera’s sensor? I would advise you use adequate protection in either case myself.

    I see a fitbit on her chubby wrist. Sorry Quinn. You must actually do something physically do actually get fit. Being a public taker. Doesn’t count.
