The Arkansas Natural Sky Association (ANSA)
is working with the Arkansas Space Grant Consortium
, along with various astronomy groups and individuals to expand the LTP concept to areas not currently served. With this website, ANSA hopes to increase awareness of LTP programs, as well as provide information and inspiration to users and potential users of library telescopes by providing beginner sky guides, a user's guide webpage
, and volunteer recruitment to help libraries with maintenance and program suggestions.
If you are familiar with the use and maintenance of backyard telescopes or are willing to learn and have an interest in supporting a library in your area that is currently not served, please reach out to us via email.
If you are a librarian interested in implementing a telescope lending program, or already have scopes and want to be included in our program, please register your library
