Today we are delighted to launch our Library Telescope Program to help foster scientific literacy, stimulate an interest in astronomy, and provide people who have never looked through a telescope the chance to experience the excitement that comes from discovery.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Smaby Family Foundation, we join over 400 other libraries across the US that lend portable, user-friendly telescopes to patrons! Additionally, we are allocating a percentage of the telescopes for educators to check out to share with their students. We will ultimately have 30 telescopes for our collection.
