Many brick-and-mortar chains remain sold out of safety glasses to use during the upcoming solar eclipse, but local stores and organizations are filling the need.
Each branch of The Public Library will have 100 pairs to give away Aug. 18 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Because theres a limited supply, there will only be one pair available per person. A library card isnt needed to get a pair.
NASA also has information about 2-D- and 3-D-printed projectors that can be used to view the eclipse. While library officials wont be taking the lead on this option, patrons can use the facilities machines to make these projectors.
L2 Outside, located at 100 Market St., got glasses in stock Monday night. They are available at the store and will also befor sale at the Chattanooga Market L2 Outside tent Aug. 20.
L2 co-owner SethBigham said proceeds from the glasses will go toWild Trails waterway cleanup. L2 is also hosting a solar eclipse paddle tour. Click
