Watch the All American Eclipse Monday , Aug. 21!
Clayton Library Solar Eclipse Viewing Party
Join us in Downtown Clayton as we watch the Moon take a big bite out of the Sun! At around 2:45 p.m. on August 21 in Clayton, 93% of the sun will be obscured by the moon! The sky will go dark, the temperature will drop, stars will appear, and birds will start chirping their nighttime songs. The sun's faint atmosphere (its corona) will create a beautiful halo! Don't miss this awesome solar spectacle! A once-in-a-lifetime experience - the 1st total eclipse to cross from the West Coast to the Carolinas in nearly 40 years! Join us in Town Square! We'll have around 300 eclipse glasses to hand out free. Please watch the eclipse safely!

One Greenway Section Remains Closed
One section of our greenway has re-opened, however, a bridge damaged by Hurricane Matthew still remains out near Marks Creek near Riverwood. A replacement is set to be finished by the end of 2017. Having greenways along the Neuse river make for scenic trails, but the proximity to water brings challenges. Hurricane Matthew's flood waters took out a bridge and delayed repairs at a utility station along the river. Check the map for how you can still enjoy the Sam's Branch and Clayton River Walk on the Neuse greenways.
