Did you know that the total solar eclipse is coming on April 8th? Southeast Michigan will be in the path of a near total eclipse with 95% totality. 

The Commerce Township Community Library wants you to witness this historic event! We have free eclipse glasses that we will be handing out on a first-come, first-serve basis on four different days in the month of March. Our Youth Department will also be throwing an Eclipse Party on the day of the eclipse with glasses available for registrants.

Please keep in mind that families can share glasses. The eclipse will last a few hours, with totality lasting around 5 minutes. We will hand out no more than 3 glasses per family. 

Eclipse Glasses Giveaway Schedule
