Youngsville Library Giveaway Winners Revealed

Eclipse anecdotes, eclipse trivia, eclipse events, authorized eclipse eyewear, and even eclipse-viewing safety guidelines were explored during a special eclipse-themed storytelling session led by library director Kristy Wallace at the Rouse Day Care Center. Miss Nikki’s class is captured sporting their eclipse hats and showcasing the books that were shared. Remember, certified solar eclipse glasses should only be used for up to 3 minutes continuously, intermittently over the span of several hours from the onset of the partial eclipse to the totality and until the conclusion of the partial eclipse. It is crucial for children to utilize solar eclipse glasses under adult supervision.
