• Eclipse Glasses – the whole story

     

    Unfortunately, libraries DO NOT have a stash of eclipse glasses — despite all the news reports and Facebook posting that say we do. Just not true.  Some US  libraries got free ones through a special program that ended weeks ago.  We did not. We wish we had them, but we do not. 

    We have a very limited number and those who participate in the library’s program will get to use a pair – to share

    We thank the Friends of the BPL for buying us the few that we have.

    We regret the disappointment of so many who have called about glasses.
