[Michlib-l] Solar Eclipse glasses UPDATE

I apologized for any missed opportunity - both Sonya & I have been posting throughout the year but I fear the 1,000 quantity scared some folks off.  A big thank you to those able to partner with another area library to share those glasses out.  In less than 60 minutes we had a request for 3,800 glasses and I'd only ordered a couple thousand from Anne.  Those getting glasses will be notified.  Unfortunately, as it is, Anne is begging the factory to make more, so there is no guarantee.

Have a great 4th of July,

I've worked it out with Anne and they're going to send me a shipment which the Library of Michigan will than break down and ship to your library, while supplies last.  Please do not respond via email but complete the following form:  https://goo.gl/forms/r44qTmO6dFMCh5l53

Only 1 order request per library location, please.  The glasses are  free to you, but the program did close so supplies are limited.



Thank you,

We received WAY more than we need and I'm happy to share as long as I can ship them via RIDES. Let me know how many packs you'd like, I believe there are 50 in a pack, your RIDES code and I'll get them out to you.

My apologies but apparently we've flooded Anne with too many requests.  Please hold your thoughts on ordering and I'm going to see if we can arrange something better.  Original emails about this offer went out starting in August of 2016, but the last post was April.  Now that August is almost here I guess we have a strong renewed interest that's too much for her to process at this level.



Look for a follow-up from me regarding the solar glasses and please wait before messaging Anne.

I spoke to Anne Holland at the NASA table representing the Space Science Institute at ALA.  She said she still has solar eclipse glasses available and if you wanted a quantity smaller than 1,000 she may be able to ship those to you now.  You can email her directly with an order (100+ please) at aholland at spacescience.org<mailto:aholland at spacescience.org<mailto:aholland at spacescience.org%3cmailto:aholland at spacescience.org>>.  If she runs out of shipping materials, she may have to continue to send out 1,000, so consider partnering with a library in your cooperative to share!



I got the impression there will be many of the public asking for these glasses come August and NASA will be directing folks to check with their local library.
