This will be the first time since 1979 that Western New York is going to be able to see a total solar eclipse, but make sure you do it right because we only get about a 7 minute window.

To make it a sweet experience there will be viewing glasses that will be given out so, you can watch without hurting your eyes. The total solar eclipse will be on Monday, August 21 and you can pick up your glasses at any of the Buffalo and Erie County Public Libraries.

According to WIVB:

With the money allotted they will have things like an eclipse viewing party on the 21st, a rocket ship making class, story times and speakers informing everyone about space exploration. One of the most important things they can provide are free eclipse viewing eye ware.

Every Tuesday starting at 12:15, a WYRK personality will read to kids of all ages during the Fidelis Care Summer Reading Program at different Erie County Public Libraries. For the schedule, click here.
