Check Out a Telescope


We are happy to announce that telescopes can be checked out by WNPL cardholders!

If you are at least 18 years old with a WNPL card in good standing, you can check out one of three Orion Star Blast telescopes for two weeks. The kit also contains a manual, constellation guide, compass and headlamp. Telescopes can be reserved but not renewed.

Check the library catalog here for more information and availability.

The new collection kicked off with a donation by the Lake County Astronomical Society in the LoanStar program, and two additional units were purchased with library funds.
