Food For FinesDo you owe the Library money for overdue DVDs or late materials? Here is a great opportunity to pay that fine and help the community: For the month of December, the library is accepting donations of non-perishable food in exchange for payment of fines. The cost of the items should be the same amount as your fines, and this is not valid for lost items.
Using the Library Telescope Saturday December 15th 10-11:30
The Library has recieved a gift of an Orion StarBlast 4.5-inch Astronomical Telescope with a zoom eye piece and supportive material and an instruction manual. The telescope is easy to use and is robust. There is nothing to assemble. The telescope is of manageable size, but has a relatively large optical tube. This means that the Moon and deep sky objects will show far more detail than one could see with the common "beginners" telescopes. It also has a large field of view that allows the object to stay in the eyepiece longer. This is a quality instrument, reviewed by a number of astronomical publications and found quite worthy.
Many thanks to the New Hampshire Astronomical Society and Loudon resident Curtiss Rude for the generous gift. In the next month, there will be a program to learn how to use the scope. For more information, stop by the library or call us at 798-5153.
