Oakland City Library offering Eclipse glasses The rare total eclipse is taking place on Monday, Au- gust 21. The Oakland City Public Library is prepared and offering anyone in the community free viewing glasses, while supplies last. The library was selected to receive the special glasses from the Space Science In- stitute who administered a grant from the Moore Foun- dation that will provide over a million eclipse glasses to public libraries nationally. A look at Xavier Jubier's 2017 Total Eclipse Interac- tive Google Map shows the area can expect up to a 97 percent totality rate. The next total eclipse in North America will be in 2024 according to the Great Amer- ican Eclipse website.
