Where to find eclipse viewing glasses

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Local libraries are getting slammed with requests for eclipse glasses.

After WCAX News did a story about some of them handing out the glasses, libraries around Vermont tell us they've been getting tons of calls.

Here's the catch: while some of them in places like Williston and Bellows Falls have given out hundreds of glasses to watch the solar eclipse, others only have enough to use during eclipse viewing events at their libraries.

So again, only some of the libraries are handing out the glasses ahead of time, the others only have glasses for their Monday eclipse viewing events and if you go, you may have to share them. Here's a rundown of all those libraries:
