In the hometown of our magazine’s editorial office, Yonkers, the local Crestwood Library branch threw a marvelous, family-oriented eclipse-gazing get-together that had an enormous success. Led by librarian Zahra Baird, Branch Manager, a flock of volunteers assisted the large amount of participants in getting their viewing glasses for the awe-inspiring event to be viewed.

The feeling of wonder and amazement was punctuated by the various “Wow”, “Look at that”, “It’s getting dark”, and so on that most participants emitted at various times throughout this natural but rare episode. A great event, then, that brought together the community and proved that the local library still has important functions in our society that go well beyond the provision of reading materials.
