Dear Slate Belt Resident:

I would once again like to thank you for your continuing support. As we move through these uncertain times your support has helped us continue to service the Slate Belt community. 

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 was not open to the community, we continued to provide services to our community by answering emails, phone calls, posting information and virtual programs on our web site and our social media pages. “Step side” pick-up helped the library to slowly reopen. Through it all your support was there.

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 coming through our doors utilizing our onsite services, such as the fax machine, copy machine, computers and gather information about materials to help with home and cyber schooling.

With our community support, many wonderful things continue to happen here. We received a grant from Berkheimer to replace the security gates; The Bangor Borough donated three computers as they were upgrading theirs. The library web site was updated and we earned our Bronze Star from The PA Forward Program.

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
