Kent Library Partners with St. Louis Astronomical Society’s Library Telescope Program

Southeast Missouri State University’s Kent Library is pairing with the St. Louis Astronomical Society (SLAS) to increase area residents’ knowledge of objects in the night sky as part of the Library Telescope Program.

Beginning Sept. 9, individuals with a valid library card will be able to check out an Orion StarBlast 4.5-inch telescope for a seven-day period.

“The telescopes provide a platform for education and programming,” said Christy Mershon, director of Southeast’s Continuing and Extended Education.
