The Fontana Regional Library System was awarded a LSTA grant to be used to bring hands-on astronomy education to the residents of Macon, Jackson and Swain Counties. The Asheville Astronomy Club
has graciously partnered with FRL to assist with obtaining equipment and training staff. Most recently, staff from each Fontana Regional Library participated in telescope training on October 10th, at Macon County Public Library. Knox Worde, the president of the Asheville Astronomy Club, led the telescope training with staff.
