The Provo City Library has seven telescopes available for checkout! We appreciate the help of the Utah Valley Astronomy Club who help us keep the telescopes in stellar condition. We hope this program will foster scientific literacy, stimulate interest in astronomy, and provide people who have never looked through a telescope the chance to experience the excitement that comes from exploring the night sky!
Our library telescopes are available to anyone who has a valid Provo City Library Card. The telescopes are popular and there is usually a wait list to use them, so you will need to place a hold. Telescopes check out for one week, and the overdue fee is $5.00 per day.
Telescopes must be picked up from and returned to the 1st Floor Reference Desk during library hours.
