Eclipse Glasses

Please read: the library did order Eclipse glasses, but the shipment hasn’t arrived. We will NOT be taking names for a waiting list and we don’t really know when they will come in. We thought they would be here this week, but it is Friday and they haven’t arrived and it is doubtful that they will arrive today. If we do receive them, we will have very few available after we give them to USD 420 schools.
