The latest addition to our collection is an Orion StarBlast 4.5 Astro Scope! Thanks to a grant from Cornerstones of Science, you can check out a telescope just like you would a book. The telescope may be checked out by a member of the Topsham Public Library who is 18 years or older, and has been in good standing for a minimum of 6 months. Each patron must present a valid Maine driver’s license or other government issued I.D. The check out period is one week and the telescope must be returned directly to a staff member at the circulation desk. Call the library or email mariah@topshamlibrary.org for more details.

Fishing Rods

Topsham Public Library has a variety of fishing rods including closed reel and fly rods that can be checked out with your library card. We are just by the river! Ask at the circulation desk for details.

Binoculars

Ever considered bird watching? The Topsham Public Library has a number of pairs of binoculars that can be checked out with your library card. Ask at the circulation desk or reserve your pair here.

Kill-a-Watt Meters

Kill-a-Watt meters can be checked out by Topsham Public Library patrons for three weeks just like a book! Use the meter to check your electrical appliances to see what is costing you the most money in electricity bills! Ask at the circulation desk to check out a meter.
