NCW Libraries has begun a telescope lending program!  We held a kickoff event on Friday June 14th, and had almost 200 folks attend!  Currently we have three telescopes, and two more coming soon courtesy of the Table Mountain Star Party!  The scopes are 5" f/5, and two sets of binoculars on tripods have been donated as well.  There are 30 library branches in 5 Washington counties.  The eventual goal is to make sure there are scopes available in all areas.

 

Fingers are crossed for a smoke free summer here in North Central Washington!

 

Cheers!

Wonderful! Our library telescope program is finally starting to take off after two years in Northwest Ohio. 

 

Isn't this stuff great! Kudos to New Hampshire for getting the ball rolling!
