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.
