Eclipse-themed events at CCPL branches include a hands-on activity session with NASA specialists, lectures by College of Charleston Astronomy Department representatives, crafts, stories, and the distribution of thousands of free glasses to safely view the solar eclipse.
Beginning Wednesday, July 5th, 500 pairs of safety glasses will be available to pick up at the Main Library Circulation Desk. This free giveaway is limited to one pair of safety glasses per household member while supplies last. Additional safety glasses will be available to pick up at CCPL branches that host eclipse-related events in August.
