The Greene County Public Library in Paragould can check out telescopes to patrons to help improve an interest in astronomy.

Through a grant in cooperation with the Arkansas Natural Sky Association and the Arkansas Space Grant Consortium, the library has two Orion StarBlast 4.5-inch Astronomical Telescopes.
