Let the book browsing begin!

One of the things I have truly missed in the last year is just puttering around the library, searching for interesting books to check out. I have been known to kill a few hours just exploring the racks in search of something cool to read. My library card hasn't had a good workout in quite some time, but today that all changes.

The Bangor Public Library, located at 145 Harlow Street will reopen today for limited browsing in the adult collection area Starting today, April 12th, patrons can browse limited areas of the first and second floor adult collection from 10am-12pm, and also from 2pm-4pm. While allowing for cleaning purposes in between the two browsing periods. The ask that people make their selections quickly, so they can keep the head count low in the building.

Appointments are not necessary for this service, but are still required for computer use, local history use, and use of the children's room. In persone vents such as lectures and story times will not yet resume, but they will continue to offer online events for all ages.

Bangor Public Library has loaned out a whopping 15,000 books from their front entrance since last June, but are pretty psyched to let the general public back inside!

Per state and local guidelines, masks are required in the building, except children under the age of two. If you should you need an accommodation, you can give them a call at 947-8336 before coming to the library.

Also, The 98 Wake and Shake Cafe will remain open, adding two dine-in tables.
