Bangor Public Library, Bangor Reviews - Write a Review

  • The Bangor Public Library is a beautiful library; Stephen King funded a great deal of it. When you first enter on the first floor, they have a lovely sun room where you can read or enjoy lunch and it's particularly nice on cold winter days. The library has 3 floors and many, many books to choose from, but don't worry, they have resource computers so you can easily look up a book and find it. If they don't have it then they can always ship it there. They also have a fantastic children's section on the 3rd floor. They offer many amenities like elevators; free-wifi; a large genealogy section; books with large print; e-books; an online foreign language program that offers many different languages; and computers, free to use. The Bangor Public Library also often hosts activities like Adult Coloring Night and various movie screenings.

  • Nice library and I'm sure they have great books. As a tourist in the area I was hoping for a room or display dedicated to their local celebrity, Stephen King, and was sadly disappointed. It seems like something they should consider in the future.

  • A great selection of everything. Plus a nice deli. Good food at a good price.

  • More computers. When I go to a library i expect a lot of books , not so many computer areas. Very small selection. I loved using the maine infonet, there where so many to choose from. With the switch in apps. Thrre are so few books available it is useless.

  • Very nice have many books if they don't have what you are looking for they can get book for you. They have a nice computer area.
