Check out a TELESCOPE!


Thanks to generous donations, we now offer you the chance to check out an easy-to-use tabletop telescope. Get up close and personal with the objects in the night sky with an Orion StarBlast telescope.


We are currently taking names/numbers for a wait list. If you'd like to place a hold, please call the Youth Department at 248-887-2218 (option 4).
