With the help of the Lake County Astronomical Society, the Ela Area Public Library is pleased to offer telescopes for checkout to Ela patrons.
LoanStar Telescopes are available for Ela cardholders ages 12 and up to check-out. Telescopes check-out for two weeks and are not renewable. They can be placed on hold. Patrons checking out the telescope are required to sign a borrowing agreement. Patrons under the age of 18 will need to have the agreement signed by a parent or guardian.
Check the Library's catalog for availability and to place a hold on a telescope.
