Unfortunately, the Hays Public Library only has a limited number of eclipse glasses, which were purchased for use during library programs. Due to the limits of our budget, we are not able to purchase glasses for schools, businesses or other outside organizations. We will be giving away 25 pairs of eclipse glasses on August 14 at 6 PM during a presentation by Dr. Dean Stramel on the solar eclipse. Another 25 pairs will be distributed at a DIY eclipse t-shirt event on the 16th at 6 PM. Finally, on August 21 from 12 PM to 2 PM, the library will distribute 175 pairs of glasses during our solar eclipse watch party. Please visit our calendar for more information!

Leave it to the Hays Public Library to provide the fun. We offer more than just our great collection of books! Meet new friends through our programs or join a class and learn how to do something new! We have something for every age. Find all our programs and events on our calendar page.
