Dear Slate Belt Resident:

The Library Board and Staff would like to thank all of you for helping us celebrate our 100th Anniversary of serving the residents of the Slate Belt. With your support, the library can continue to evolve and change becoming a friend to all, a source of information, or just a safe place to go.

The importance of the Library to residents of Bangor, East Bangor, Lower Mount Bethel, Portland, Roseto, Upper Mount Bethel, and Washington cannot be overstated. Even when our physical building remains partially closed to the community, we continue to provide services to our community by answering emails, phone calls, posting information and virtual programs on our website and our social media pages. 

Now more than ever it is critical that free access to collections, technology, and programs remains available to students, job hunters, senior citizens, and all the thousands of patrons who walk through our doors seeking information. Many of our residents come through our doors to utilize our onsite services, such as fax machines, copy machines, computers and to gather information and materials to help with home and cyber schooling.

With our community support, many wonderful things continue to happen here. We strengthened our wifi inside and outside of the building, and four Chrome books were obtained through the District library covid grant money. The library has entered into a five-year agreement with East Stroudsburg University to have interns working with the Library Director to strengthen our social media presents. In addition, we continue to provide Tuesday Story Time through ZOOM and hold our every other month Lego contests.

This year’s campaign will raise funds to continue to support the mission of our Community Library. Our goal is to close the $30,000.00 deficit and to offer enhanced opportunities for patrons by:

We hope this letter will encourage your continued support with a tax-deductible donation. As our population grows, so does the need for our Library’s resources. The Bangor Public Library wants to be able to continue to serve all citizens as the need for information grows. Thank you for your assistance in securing the Library’s collections, programs, and services for you and future generations of library users.

Kathleen Lynch,
Library Director
