What our patrons are saying

I greatly appreciate the wide variety of offerings, from books, audio books, magazines and children’s programming. I’ve been coming to your library for 36 years and now get to enjoy seeing my own daughter enjoy it too. As a full time working parent I appreciate the fact that you offer Children’s programming on the weekends too! When I was going through a divorce your Saturday morning story time is what got my daughter and I out of the house and making friends. Thank you!

I love the Bangor Public Library! The physical space is beautiful in every room, lots of great work space, wi-fi, comfortable seating, courteous and helpful staff, and you can borrow stuff and share it with others! Borrowing, sharing, open to all, a public place for all people. How does it get any better than that?!
