The library now has a stereo microscope for loan. The microscope kit includes an AmScope microscope with 20x and 40x magnification settings and top and bottom LED lights, an instruction manual, and 25 prepared slides. Samples on the slides include a pine leaf, sunflower stem, sections of a hydra, connective tissue, and muscle.

Adults with a library card can check out the kit for 2 weeks. The late fee is $1/day. 

Acton residents can place a hold on the microscope kit here:
