J. R. Clarke is so excited to offer everyone an opportunity to checkout, take this telescope home and explore the skies! Brukner Nature Center's "Stillwater Stargazers" have designed a very family friendly telescope that all of our patrons, ages 18 and up, can take home for a week. Each patron would require a valid J.R. Clarke Public Library card,a current photo ID and a $10.00 holding fee. The $10.00 would be returned upon the safe return of the telescope! The Stillwater Stargazers have made this opportunity a goal of their organization to spread the word and love of gazing at the many planets, star clusters and other heavenly bodies! Members have taken the main telescope and added several safety features that make the telescope not only easy to use, but also safer and less likely to break. The Stargazers have also designed a monthly newsletter, "SkySights for the Month," for all users that tell "what to view" in the sky during a specific season or time period. We can sign-up anyone wanting to use the telescope six months, in advance. Recently, our Staff Librarians at J.R. Clarke, were trained on how to use the telescope and also how to protect and handle the telescope once it leaves the library! You and your family will be amazed at what sights you might behold! Call us or stop in and sign-up for this free service.
