Viewing the stars through a telescope is a powerful experience that can foster scientific literacy, inspire an interest in astronomy, and develop a greater appreciation for the earth’s place in the universe. To help bring this excitement to our patrons, the Poughkeepsie Public Library District will be loaning Orion StarBlast 4.5 Astro Reflector Telescopes at the Adriance Memorial Library and the Boardman Road Branch Library.
The telescopes can be borrowed by any Poughkeepsie resident with a library card to 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.
