Third floor of Bangor Public Library closing
BANGOR – Effective Monday, March 9, the entire third floor of the Bangor Public Library will be closed for the renovation. The third floor currently consists of the quiet study area, fiction, biographies, the local history department, microfilm/microfiche collection and the Lecture Hall.
The new third floor will consist of an updated Lecture Hall, an art gallery for rotating exhibits, a World War II/Library Collection rotating exhibit, a Teen Center, and the new Children’s Department. The books currently housed in this location will be relocated to other areas of the building, including the new Fiction Cellar. Some favorite works may be inaccessible during this move process, but Library movers and staff are trying to minimize this impact as much as possible.
