Program Launch - May 2021

We are pleased to report the Amsterdam Public Library in the Netherlands is launching a library telescope program, effective May 1, 2021.  The program is supported by the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy.

Program Update - July 2021

On July 9, 2021, we received the following update on Amsterdam Public Library Program:

The library telescope is a big hit here and we’ve already added 3 more, so we now have 4 library telescopes in Amsterdam. There are reservations until February next year and it was featured in a national newspaper:

Below are two pictures of the process of introducing the new telescopes. The first one is two library employees learning how to use the telescope, and the second is the new telescopes at the university workshop.
