Eclipse glasses giveaway — beginning April 1 while supplies last

Are you looking forward to the solar eclipse coming April 8? This area will experience near totality, and the library has acquired a limited supply of eclipse glasses to give away the week of April 1–8 or while supplies last. In order to be fair, the following rules apply. Thank you for your understanding!

  • Glasses will be given out on a first come, first served basis beginning Monday, April 1, at both Grove City Library and Westland Area Library while supplies last.
  • No reservations or holds of glasses are permitted.
  • Limit of 4 glasses per family.
  • One member of the family must be present for pick up.
  • No one may pick up glasses for other families.

PRO TIP:  We are expecting our phone lines and message inboxes to be busy. Check these places to see if we have glasses still available. We will notify the public when we are out of eclipse glasses via:

  • the library's website
  • the library's Facebook & Instagram
  • a message on our phones
  • signage on doors and/or near entryways

DID YOU KNOW? If your child is a student within South-western City School District, in addition to early release on April 8, SWCSD will also be giving a pair of eclipse glasses in advance of April 8 to each of its students. Learn more here
