The library 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. Collect your own intriguing samples from nature, or start with the prepared slides, which include a pine leaf, sunflower stem, and sections of a hydra.

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:
