Backyard Astronomy: Come in to borrow the library telescope!

Please come on in to check out the library telescope to observe objects from your own backyard using a technique called star-hopping and learn how easy it is to use!

This telescope was donated to the library by John C. Root in memory of his wife, Susan E. Root, and is maintained by Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. as part of their Adopt a Library Program.

Teah Arum bio: Author Teah Arum lives in Rutland, Massachusetts. She published her first novel at the age of 14. She has been writing since she was in second grade and really connects with her readers because she has recently experienced so many issues that young girls encounter. Other than writing in her free time she enjoys hula hooping, cooking, baking, babysitting, sleep away camp, chilling with her family, and binge watching shows on Netflix.
