The Blackfoot Public LIbrary is hosting "Everything Eclipse" during August.
A grant from the Space-Science Institute has enabled the library to purchase 300 eclipse glasses.
Three hundred eclipse glasses will be given away on a first come, first served basis. The first 100 people to visit the library in person will be given a pair of these glasses. The limit is one pair per person.
One hundred glasses will be given away on Thursday, Aug. 3; 100 on Friday, Aug. 11; and 100 on Monday, Aug. 14. Any remaining glasses will be given out on Friday, Aug. 18, and Saturday, Aug. 19.
