Star Parties with Public Libraries around Maine

By August 18, 2015Library Partner News

Over 55 libraries in Maine now have telescopes through their partnership with Cornerstones of Science or with their local astronomy club. Star parties are great ways to connect with library patrons and community members. Southern Maine Astronomers are available to assist with library star parties in southern Maine. For other parts of Maine, contact Cornerstones of Science to help locate an astronomer in your area. Borrow a telescope from Cornerstones too through their Science Trunk Program at the Maine State Library website link here. Check for availability and request a trunk on the website, receive the trunk at your library through the van service, and hold an event!
