Stargazing 101 – Learn to use our new Telescope

The Burlington Public Library has added an Orion StarBlast 4.5” telescope that you can check out with your library card.
Telescope Program and Loan Program

It’s a great family activity and there are many books in our library to introduce you to basic astronomy. The telescope will be loaned out for two weeks at a time.

The telescope was donated by Island County Astronomical Society. Volunteer astronomer Bob Scott of the society has decades of experience studying the stars and is happy to help.
