Having trouble navigating the website. Does this branch do any story times for tots?? Thank you!!!
Just finally cashed in my 60 minute massage from the summer reading program! Thank you it was fabulous!!💆‍♀️🧘‍♀️
Does Your Library Have a Library Telescope Program? A Library Telescope is a telescope owned by a library that can be borrowed just like a book. Usually it’s a modified Orion 4.5” StarBlast Reflector Telescope. What better way to bring astronomy to the youth of today, than to give them access to a quality telescope? Having a parent, or other adult, borrow the telescope and amaze a child with views of the Moon or a planet, could make a lasting impression. Maybe even lead to a career in astronomy or some other science. Hundreds of libraries across the United States have Library Telescope Programs that have been remarkably successful. A library can get a telescope program going for under $400. The telescope is modified in various ways so it is less likely to be damaged and parts are less likely to be lost. Shouldn’t your library have a Library Telescope Program? For more information see page: Library Telescopes
Exactly!
So thankful none of you are like this. 😆
