Dear Slate Belt Resident:

The Library Board and Staff would like to once again thank all of you for supporting the library. The community’s continuing support helps the library provide wonderful programs, services, and resources of information to all in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. 

The importance of the Library to residents of Bangor, East Bangor, Lower Mount Bethel, Portland, Roseto, Upper Mount Bethel, and Washington cannot be overstated. The Library Staff work hard to make sure that everyone in the communities we serve receive one on one person attention when providing them with book information, computer help, directions, answering emails or phone calls. We continue to post information about programs here at the library or what is going on in our community on the library’s social media pages and web site. 

Now more than ever it is critical that free access to collections, technology, and programs remain 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 the fax machine, copy machine, 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. In-person programs have returned to the library, like our Tuesday morning Story Time, author visits, 4H programs and craft programs. Our Summer Reading program came back strong with 60 registered youth from ages 5-16. The Book club has started back up too. 

This year’s campaign will raise funds to continue to support the mission of our community Library. Our goal is to close the $28,000.00 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
