13 Libraries in CT were able to get solar eclipse viewing glasses through a grant program. Unfortunately, RPL  is not one of the libraries that were able to get the glasses. It is our understanding that any area libraries that got them through the grant or purchased them to give out, will only give them to their own patrons.  Here is a link to an article which tells you how to make your own viewing box out of household objects. http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/6-simple-steps-making-solar-eclipse-viewer-article-1.3413967 .
