Our microscope kits are ready for checkout! We have 2 kits that may be checked out by library patrons over 18 who are in good standing and have a current ID. Please note, parents will need to check out kits for children under 18. We will be scheduling several brief orientation sessions. Please sign up for one that fits your schedule.
The kits contain a compound microscope, prepared slides, blank slides and coverslips, a petri dish and a pipette – all packed neatly in a zippered carrying case. Many thanks to Gary Brown for inspiring this project and for the many hours he has devoted to preparation. This project is supported in part by state aid funding appropriated by the Nebraska Legislature, granted and administered by the Nebraska Library Commission.
We also have a small but growing collection of books related to microscopes. Let us know if you have questions!
