Now You Can Borrow A Telescope From The Library
Thanks to a very generous recent donation, Chelmsford now has two telescopes available at the library!
The telescopes (one at the Main Library and one at the MacKay Branch) can be checked out just like a book or DVD, so you can use it at home to look at the stars. They are small but powerful - easy to take home with a built-in carry handle, but strong enough provide views of craters on the moon or the rings of Saturn.
You can reserve the telescopes through our catalog, and then check it out for one week. Patrons must be 18 or older to check one out, and a picture ID is also required. The telescopes each come with an operation manual, a starguide, and a headlamp.
The telescope at the Main Library is a gift in memory of Eugene Schueller, by Rich and Sue Schueller. MacKay's telescope is a gift from Bruce and Donna Berger.
Explore the night sky with these wonderful additions to the library collection! Contact either the main desk at 978-256-5521 or the MacKay Branch, x6, for more information.
