Additional Happenings During #MESCIFEST2015 Weekend
Did you know that Bangor Public Library has more than just books to borrow? Some of their latest acquisitions are three Celestron Digital Microscopes and an Orion Starblast Telescope. The microscopes are excellent for close-up views (magnification ~20X to 200x) of circuit boards, fossils, rocks, stamps, coins, feathers and shells, and also allows you to take pictures and videos. The telescope is a 4.5 inch reflective telescope, and includes instructions, a constellation guide and a headlamp. Come explore what’s available to borrow at the Bangor Public Library!
