Circulating Telescope

Orion Starblast 4.5" Telescope

Thanks to the Friends of the Cumberland Library, the Library is now circulating a fully functional telescope. This is easy-to-use telescope kit includes a book of constellations and a copy of 50 Things to See with a Small Telescope.

This is a great way to try out amateur astronomy without the cost.
Why not check it out!

The loan period for the telescope is seven (7) days. It can only be checked out with an Ocean State Libraries card at the Circulation Desk and must be returned to the Circulation Desk. Borrowers must be 18 years or older to check out the telescope. No returns in the book drops. The late fee is $5/day.

Stop by the circulation desk or call 333-2552 x4 to put your name on the waiting list.
