The Fauquier County Public Library has free “Eclipse Viewing Glasses,” available at all three branches, for safely watching the big event on Monday, Aug. 21.

The library quickly gave away 1,000 pairs of the glasses last month. An anonymous donor provided funds for a new supply of 6,000 pairs, which arrived Wednesday.

“Glasses are available on a first-come, first-serve basis,” library spokeswoman Lisa Pavlock said. “There is no charge for the glasses, but glasses are limited to one per person.”

Each library branch — Bealeton, Marshall and Warrenton — will host an Eclipse Viewing Party from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21. The events will feature information about the phenomenon and astronomical-themed refreshments.

Although the total eclipse will not pass directly over Virginia, approximately 81 percent of the sun’s surface will be eclipsed in the Washington, D.C., area.
