Attend this family friendly event to learn how to use the new library 4.5 inch Orion StarBlast telescope! Local amateur astronomer Roger Menard will guide us in using the telescope to view the December night sky. Learn how to use a technique called star hopping to observe objects from your own backyard. Our telescope will be available for checkout in the new year.
Additional activities and refreshments will be held inside the library.
