Memorial Hall Library

Borrow a telescope

Thanks to the Friends of MHL and the Aldrich Astronomical Society, the library has two telescopes for lending! The telescopes come with an easy-to-use instruction manual, a pocket guide of constellations, and magnification chart. This is a great way to try out amateur astronomy without the cost.

  • Telescope must be borrowed from and returned to MHL.
  • Lending period is seven days. Telescopes may be renewed two times if no other patron is on hold for one.
  • Borrower must be 18 or older, picture ID required.
  • Borrower must sign the Telescope Borrowing Agreement at time of checkout.
