The Poughkeepsie Public Library District has two Orion StarBlast 4.5 Astro Reflector Telescopes (one each at the Adriance Memorial Library and the Boardman Road Branch Library) to be borrowed by any Poughkeepsie resident with a valid library card.

View astronomical events, learn more about our solar system and the stars, and enjoy viewing the night sky. The Orion StarBlast Telescope is a real reflecting telescope that’s simple to set up and fun to use, and it will inspire your family’s natural inclination to explore.
