Events at the Ojai Library
Beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, August 21 the Ojai Library will be hosting a live stream viewing of the 2017 Solar Eclipse. A partial solar eclipse will be visible from Southern California, while certain areas of the country will be able to witness a total solar eclipse. We will project a live stream of the eclipse in the library meeting room, and a limited amount of eclipse glasses will be available for those present.
A solar eclipse occurs when the sun is partially or completely obscured by the moon, revealing the solar corona. These events are rare; the next solar eclipse that will be visible from North America will not happen until the year 2024. More information on the eclipse can be found by visiting https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/.
At 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 19 the Ojai Library will host a screening of the documentary film Seeds of Time. After the screening there will be a discussion facilitated by members of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF).
A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. This film follows Fowler on a passionate and personal journey that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.
This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Ron Solórzano, Regional Librarian, at 218-9146.
