Each branch will have limited quantities of the glasses available starting Saturday. Officials said they were received from the STAR Library Education Network, which has distributed more than 2 million ISO-compliant glasses to libraries around the nation.

The library will also host an eclipse viewing party on Monday from 10 to 11 a.m. and protective glasses will be provided.

Attendees will be able to view the solar eclipse by using pinhole projectors and safety glasses.

Experts are anxious the shortage of protective glasses that are needed to watch the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse in the U.S.in 99 years will create real danger. It suggests that solar eclipses happen because mythical dogs are trying to steal the sun. "Library patrons have been enthusiastic about our pre-eclipse giveaways". Crafts and other activities will be available for families during the process.

People line up to receive their solar eclipse-viewing glasses at the Newhall library on Friday, August 18, 2017.

Nick Kyrgios Beats New No. 1 Rafa Nadal in Cincinnati Masters
Kyrgios - locked in with his hard and deep groundstrokes - broke Nadal in the opening game after the latter sent a forehand long. Seven hours earlier, Kyrgios rallied past Ivo Karlovic , 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-3, to finish their rain-delayed third round showdown.

AAS recommends the eclipse glasses meet the current worldwide standard of ISO 12312-2.

He said students will not be allowed to go outside to view the eclipse without parental permission and proper eyewear. “Those in the path of totality have, in theory, about 2.5 minutes when they could look at the eclipse without glasses, but that is not possible here in Polson.”.

The last time the contiguous United States saw a total eclipse was in 1979. It is the first total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast in the USA since June 8, 1918.

Other participating libraries in New Mexico include Bloomfield Public Library; Columbus Village Library: Farmington Public Library, Mother Whiteside Memorial Library, Grants; Rio Abajo Community Library; Rio Rancho Public Library; Silver City Public Library and Socorro Public Library. “They do provide a little bit of money for collection development.
