Telescope Lending

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 non-rewable, 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. Telescopes can be placed on hold for 48 hours, and only if you do not currently have one checked out.
