What's Happening: Week of Aug. 21

The big news this week is the historical total solar eclipse. Many of our libraries are hosting eclipse-related activities. Several are also throwing parties and giving away prizes to celebrate a successful summer of reading. Mixed into that will be a scattering of makerspace, music and mindfulness programs. So don't give up on summer at the libraries just yet!
