Recycling Eclipse Glasses After the Parties

Don’t throw away your eclipse glasses! We are partnering with Astronomers Without Borders, who help to bring glasses to people around the world who may not otherwise have a safe way to view eclipses directly. They have been sending solar glasses for annular and total solar eclipses since 2008. We will have recycling boxes at all of our Libraries starting April 8. Any glasses, whether received from the library or not, may be recycled. Thank you!
