Yep, we hope you heard it here first, or perhaps from our friends at the Teton County Library, but effective August 1, regular residents and citizens of Teton County, WY with checkouts can scoop up their very own eclipse glasses for free-because it’s the library of course! Be sure to act fast, as insiders say there’s a limited supply. No doubt they come with restrictions -one per but nonetheless, the Teton Eclipse contingent is grateful to have the Library as a partner and outlet for these essential solar viewing pieces.
Thanks for learning as much as you can about safe viewing during a total solar eclipse. Local eye doctors and emergency medical workers will thank you too!
Meanwhile…over in tiny/mighty Alta, WY:
Together with Teton County Emergency Management Services, Teton County Library Alta Branch with support from the citizens of Alta, Wyoming are hosting an information session dedicated to eclipse preparedness.

GET SOME TIPS FOR THE ECLIPSE | Public Safety Presentation
The first Total Solar Eclipse to visit the U.S. in 38 years will occur MON, AUG 21, at 11:30 a.m. Teton Valley could offer one of the best places in the nation to view the total eclipse, which will last for just two minutes and thirty seconds. Rich Ochs from Teton County Emergency Management will discuss our public safety planning efforts, issues the community may face, and simple steps locals can take to best prepare for this once in a lifetime event and the surge in visitors coming to our area for viewing.
