The library has 16 Orion StarBlast telescopes for Fremont Cardholders to check out; our first telescope was a donation from the Lake County Astronomical Society, and the telescope lending continues in partnership with the society. Watch this video for a brief overview of the telescope and how to use it.
Checkout is for three weeks with no renewals, and is limited to Fremont cardholders age 18 and older. The telescope must be transported by car. You can place a hold on the telescope in our catalog or by calling the library at 847-918-3225.
