Solar Science Programming Kits

On April 8, 2024, North America will experience an incredible natural event that has been dubbed the Great North American Eclipse. Two-thirds of the state of Arkansas will be in the path of totality and the rest of the state will experience 95% of totality.

The Arkansas State Library circulates solar science kits to libraries for use in library programming. Two different types of kits are available to support: 1) multi-generational programming for all ages; and 2) younger audience programming for children under the age of 10.

Circulation Process

The borrowing period is five weeks:

  • Pick-up during week one and become familiar with kit activities
  • Programming weeks 2-5
  • Drop-off during week five

The borrowing library is responsible for coordination drop-off and pick-up with the Arkansas State Library.

The reservation form includes three request options for each kit. Please check the Calendar to see whether a kit is available during your preferred programming time. Rank the dates that you would prefer for your five-week checkout period to begin by first, second, and third choice.
