If you are interested in launching a library telescope program in your library, we suggest that you partner with an astronomy club near you. Below is a list of astronomy clubs by state as listed by the Astronomical League (www.astroleague.org), an organization composed of over two hundred and forty local amateur astronomical societies across the United States.
The library telescope program is active in over 20 states. A list of known supporting organizations and organizations is provided below. If your organization is not listed or a correction in your listing needs to be made, please Contactus. If you do not have a library telescope program and would like to learn more about starting one, visit our "Launch Program" link to get more information.
To foster scientific literacy, stimulate an interest in astronomy, and provide people who have never looked through a telescope the chance to experience the excitement that comes from discovery
