Ever wanted to use a telescope, but don’t want to buy one? If you have a library card with the Missoula Public Library, you can check out a telescope for free! Interested folks can checkout the scope pictured below via the Missoula Public Library through a cooperative program with the Western Montana Astonomical Association. For more information about the telescope and its use, contact our president, Nick Wethington, through the Contact Us form.
This program is based on a similiar one now operating in New Hampshire. For the New Hampshire program please see: NHAS Library Telescope Program
