The Planisphere was donated to the Kimball Library by the New Hampshire Astronomical Society. Continuing with their outreach mission, th NH Astronomical Society initated the Library Planisphere Program. They hope that this simple device will make it easier for those interested in the night sky (young or old) to increase their understanding of astronomy and inspire further investigation.
