Handwritten drawing by the Mercado Family, Skokie Public Library Solar Eclipse Party Time Capsule, August 21, 2017
Handwritten note with drawing on index card in orange and gray pencil by the Mercado Family for the Skokie Public Library Solar Eclipse Party Time Capsule. Just after noon on Monday, August 21, 2017, the Skokie, Illinois community joined others across the United States in viewing the astronomical event of the year: the solar eclipse. The library provided 300 free, safe viewing glasses for participants—a number dwarfed by the 1,123 people who ultimately participated. Participants were invited to write notes for watchers of the next solar eclipse to take place in the continental United States on Monday, April 8, 2024.
