Total solar eclipse viewing party

​Salem is among the lucky communities in line to see the Moon hide the Sun entirely for approximately two minutes. On the day of the eclipse, come to the Library to get your free pair of eclipse viewing glasses (while supplies last), and join the viewing party in the Salem Peace Plaza. Restrooms and drinking water will be available on the first floor.​
