Name wanted for new Pittsfield Library telescope

  PITTSFIELD – The Pittsfield Public Library is inviting patrons to suggest a name for the library's new telescope.  The telescope is an Orion StarBlast 4.5” and is now available for patrons over age 18 to check out through the STAR Library Program (Sharing Telescopes and Astronomy.
   The library is looking for a creative, catchy name.  All suggestions will be considered. Deadline for submitting a name for the telescope is Friday, Aug. 31.
  The Friends of the Pittsfield Public Library has donated a pass to the Maine Discovery Museum in Bangor for patrons to check out.  The pass allows four people free admission to the museum.  Two passes are also available for the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden. Call the library at 487-5880 for more information.
  The libary also celebrated a successful 2012 Summer Reading Program with a Dream Big: Read pajama party.  Participants listened to bedtime stories, decorated pillowcases, and did a yoga class, led by Chris Faria.  The party ended with ice-cream cones, donated by Bud's Shop N' Save of Pittsfield.  Children who participated by listing 10 books they read in their reading log received a gift bag containing a book and other treats.
  Winners of the prize drawing for the final week of summer reading are Reagan Lary, Sarah Strong, Alexia Brooks, and Hannah Robinson.  Story time resumes in September on Mondays at 10:15 a.m.
