Library Telescope Program
Telescopes give us a powerful way to view objects in the night sky, to get outside, and to experience the wonders of the universe.
Cornerstones of Science fosters interest in astronomy by getting high-quality Orion 4.5” StarBlast telescopes into the hands of the public through the public library system. We work with public libraries either directly, or through amateur astronomy clubs and others interested in offering this hands-on science tool to communities. Telescopes can be offered as a take-home for patrons and as programmatic tool at the library. The Cornerstones of Science Library Telescope Program is active in 28 states across America and growing.
