The Mercer Library has an Orion StarBlast telescope available for public checkout, thanks to a contribution from the Friends of the Mercer Library.

This beginner-friendly telescope includes the Orion StarBlast 4.5" Telescope with attached "EZ Finder" scope, Celestron 8-24 mm zoom eyepiece, the National Audubon Society Pocket Guide: Constellations, Instruction manual, Lens Pen, and accessories bag.

The telescope may be borrowed in person at the Mercer Library by any Merlin library card holder in good standing, and must be returned to the library during normal library hours. Lending period is one week.
