UPDATE: The library ran out of glasses in 16 hours and managed to sign up 1,003 people for library cards.
The Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach is giving out 5,000 verified solar eclipse glasses to library cardholders. What makes this offer legit is the glasses are made by NASA and they are free. Starting today you can get up to two pairs while supplies last. Children must have a parent present to receive glasses.
A library spokesperson wanted people to know that the Mandel Public Library is not in the Palm Beach County library system so you'll need a library card for West Palm. Those interested in becoming library cardholders can call the Mandel Public Library at 561-868-7700 or sign up at www.wpbcitylibrary.org .
