Looking forward to the eclipse? We’re all out of eclipse glasses, unfortunately – but stop by the library for handouts about the eclipse and how to view it safely … or check out a book from our display about astronomy and eclipses. And stop by next Monday for a free bag of Sun Chips to celebrate the occasion!
For those who wanted to know where we obtained the glasses we gave away, they came from American Paper Optics, a Tennessee-based company that manufactures 3D glasses for movies. They have an extensive webpage on the safety of the glasses they sell.
Happy eclipse viewing!
