Give Your Eclipse Glasses a Second Chance!

Give your eclipse glasses a second chance! Gwinnett County Public Library has partnered with Astronomers Without Borders and Explore Scientific to collect glasses that will be sent to schools in South America and Asia when eclipses cross those continents in 2019.

There are Glasses Collection Centers across the US. Drop off your eclipse glasses at any of our 15 branches. See if there is a location site near you on the interactive map!

About Astronomers Without Borders:

We all share the same sky, and Astronomers Without Borders brings the world together to share our passion of astronomy and the wonders of the Universe.

 

It is this bond between people that Astronomers Without Borders hopes to foster. A brief message or the gift of a small telescope can grow into lasting bonds, goodwill and friendships that reach around the world. Understanding replaces ignorance and suspicion. Media images are superceded by the faces of real people. Relationships, support and personal connections supplant stereotypes.
