How and why did rules of painting and sculpture change radically throughout the 20th century? Through close looking and conversation, we’ll explore how artists departed from traditional materials and subject matter while grappling with the modern world. Join us for this presentation from the National Gallery of Art. This program takes place on Zoom and registration is required. Click here to register.

Eclipse Viewing Party and NASA Live Stream

Apr 08
3:00 pm -
4:00 pm

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will travel through the contiguous United States. A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun.

Weather permitting, we’ll be able to view at least a partial solar eclipse from the Library’s very own front yard! This phenomenon won’t be viewable again until summer of 2044.

Not the outdoorsy type? Watch NASA’s live stream in our program room (starting early at 1pm) and learn more about the eclipse.

Plus, join us for eclipse crafts: draw your own eclipse, color in animals wearing eclipse glasses, and use an Oreo to make your own edible eclipse. This program is for all ages and no registration is necessary.

Eclipse Glasses will be available for Pelham cardholders at the Library starting on Monday, April 1st while supplies last. Limit of 2 per household please.
