County Offices and Libraries to Close for Solar Eclipse

The DeKalb County Courthouse, County Complex County Offices and the DeKalb County Health Department will be closed Monday August 21st from 12 noon to 2 pm for the eclipse.

Justin Potter and the Alexandria Libraries will be closing on Monday, August 21 from noon until 2 p.m. for the solar eclipse so that the staff can enjoy this historic event with the community.

Helen Sefsik will have eclipse crafts for the kids from 10 a.m. until noon at Justin Potter Library so come by and make a craft for this special occasion.

A limited supply of solar eclipse glasses will be available during the Downtown Block Party starting at 12:30 p.m. in Evins Park behind city hall. The glasses will be given away on a first come, first served basis with one pair per person.

Meanwhile Jackie Smith is asking anyone who picked up solar eclipse glasses from her office, not to view the sun or the eclipse with them due to notification from Amazon from where the glasses were purchased.

According to the notification, Amazon has not received confirmation from the supplier that they sourced the glasses from a recommended manufacturer. "We recommend that you do not use the glasses to view the sun or the eclipse".

Jackie urges those who obtained solar eclipse glasses from her office to discard them.
