The New Berlin Library has purchased a microscope and a telescope. The purchase was made possible through the generosity of Andrea Miller and Donald Perkins. Andrea and Donald are the children of the late Ruso and Jean Perkins, long time residents of New Berlin and patrons of the New Berlin Library. This donation is part of the annual donation that Andrea and Donald make that funds the Perkins Memorial Performance Series at the New Berlin Library. The annual donation is made in honor of their mother and father.

The microscope is an OMAX 40X-2000X Lab LED Binocular Compound Microscope. It has a carry case and comes with a set of 25 prepared specimen slides as well as blank slides. The telescope is a Gskyer, 70mm Aperture 400mm with an AZ Mount Astronomical Refractor Travel Telescope. It has a carry bag, smartphone adapter, and a Bluetooth remote. Both items will be available for check out to New Berlin Library patrons.
