In cooperation with the Ophthalmology Interest Group and the Shreveport Red River Lions Club, the Health Sciences Library will be holding an Eyeglass Drive during the month of November. To donate your old glasses and eyeglass cases, please leave them in the basket at the Library’s circulation desk. At the end of November, the glasses will be given to the Shreveport Red River Lions Club. The Lions Club accepts prescription glasses, reading glasses, and sunglasses, with plastic or metal frames. Children’s glasses are especially needed. Donate your old eyeglasses, and help change lives one pair at a time.
