Telescope Lending Program

Welcome to the new Telescope Lending Program at Basalt Regional Library. Patrons who are 18 years or older, and have had a library card for more than a year are welcome to checkout a Orion Starblast Telescope! The loan period is one week nonrewable, with a $5.00 a day late fee. Patrons must sign the borrowing agreement before checking out a telescope. To place a telescope on hold, please call the library at (970) 927-4311, or come to the front desk.
