Free Comic Con at the Santa Clara Central Park Library

What more appropriate place is there to host a ComicCon than a library? Well, perhaps a place that actually publishes comics. In any case, the Central Park Library in Santa Cara is hosting a free ComicCon on Saturday, October 12th.

The event will bring together local artists, comic book shops, cosplayers, and games for a full day of celebration. There will be panels, signings, anime screenings, vendors, crafts, and tons of special guests. They are still building out the full agenda, but some of their guests and vendors are already listed here.

It's rare to have access to events like this for free. If you're interested you can RSVP here.

Free Solar Eclipse Glasses at San Jose libraries

The San Jose Public Library will be giving away free glasses today to use on Monday's solar eclipse. All you need to do is head down to a San Jose Public Library branch during regular library operating hours (typically noon to 5pm on Sundays). There is a limit of one pair per person.

The solar eclipse starts around 11:07am PT on Monday. For a list of recommended books about eclipses, check out the source link below.

Please remember that looking at the sun directly can cause severe eye damage and viewing it through any sort of lens like binoculars or a telescope can amplify that damage.
