Telescopes at the Library

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.

Checkout is for three weeks with no renewals; anyone with a library card and age 18 or older can check out a telescope. The telescope must be transported by car. Fremont cardholders can place a hold on the telescope in our catalog or by calling the library at 847-918-3225.

Watch this video for a brief overview of the telescope and how to use it.
