Solar Eclipse Glasses Giveaway this March and April!

March 25 update:

Please note that all glasses have been given away at Gerstein Library and Robarts Library, and there will not be any further re-stock our libraries.      

Get ready for the total solar eclipse happening on April 8th!  Did you know that except for the brief total phase of a total eclipse, it's not safe to look directly at the sun without specialized eye protection? 

Drop by a participating library to pick up your own free pair of certified eclipse glasses*. 

Limit of 2 pairs/person, while supplies last.
