Update on Solar Eclipse Glasses: Please note – Cobb County public libraries are out of eclipse viewing glasses, except for a very limited supply for locations hosting viewing party events – even those supplies are expected to run out. We urge our Cobb library patrons to plan ahead for August 21st by reviewing safety tips from credible sources and to shop for viewing glasses as soon as you can. On Tuesday, August 1st, the Switzer Library made available a limited number of free Solar Eclipse Glasses provided by the Solar Science Institute (SSI). No more are available for this round of providing the special free glasses at the Switzer Library as the supply was claimed in 25 minutes after the library doors opened at 10 am.
