The $20 million building, at Quail Road and Martin Street in south Longmont, is expected to open in the fall of 2018 and expand the existing space from 6,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet.

Eclipse Safety Checklist
It’s not the eclipse that is dangerous to observe, it’s the sun! The sun’s visible (and invisible) rays can cause serious damage to the sensitive tissues of the eyes, often without being immediately aware of it. Normally, our common sense protects us from looking directly at the sun for more than a second.
