Can't make it to the library?

The glasses we are providing are made to conform to all safety standards, enabling users to watch the eclipse without damaging their eyes. Instructions for proper use are printed on the inside of each cardboard frame, ensuring that every wearer understands proper viewing etiquette. The glasses are CE certified, ISO approved, and independently tested to ensure they meet the demanding specification required.
