2024 Partial Eclipse

Monday, April 8, 2024 Kansas will be able to see a partial Eclipse.

In Kansas we will be able to see most of the eclipse.

The plan is to meet at the library around 12:30 PM, Bring your own lawn chair and some kind of “Eclipse” themed snack. The library will have some Eclipse glasses available to use during the viewing.

During a partial solar eclipse, the sky darkens and temperatures cool. Birds, insects and other animals might act like it’s night time.
We plan to meet around 12:30, bring a chair and an Eclipse themed snack.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon comes between the Earth and the sun, blocking the sun’s light on Earth. When the moon obscures some of the sun,
that is called a partial solar eclipse. On April 8, all of the contiguous United States will experience at least a partial eclipse.

Library Giving Day 2024

Library Giving Day started as an idea generated by the Seattle Public Library Foundation. The concept was to create a national day of giving that public libraries would rally around and that the public would embrace. So, Seattle Public Library partnered with its strategic library fundraising partner, Carl Bloom Associates, to turn the idea into a reality. As a result, this helpful website and its Campaign Tools are available to make #LibraryGivingDay a success.

As we know, public libraries are known for books and research materials, but they also offer many programs that promote lifelong learning, connect patrons to technology, and advance our knowledge.

#LibraryGivingDay is a one-day fundraising event with the goal of encouraging people who depend on and enjoy public libraries to donate to their individual library system. And in turn, that support will go toward the incredible programs, services and materials provided by local libraries all over the country.

The next #LibraryGivingDay is April 3, 2024. Join the movement, download the campaign tools and start planning. Together, we can make it a success
