We simply love libraries … of every shape and size … in every town. But one of our favorites is the Bangor Public Library. In 1998, this once modest library was totally renovated by an extremely generous donation from our own Stephen & Tabitha King. Now, it is no longer just a library, it is bibliophile heaven! And visiting there can be more of a social event than even a town parade. Isaac and I have been fortunate enough to bump into many of our friends there as well as to meet many new ones. And though it is a huge place that now serves the entire population of Maine (not just the city of Bangor), we are still always greeted by name. That is Maine for ya!
We may not remember the names of these sweet little girls, and we may or may not see them there again. But the beauty of the library is that there are always old friends to greet us … always something to do or share together … always fun things to borrow … and always new friends to meet. You simply can’t go wrong there.
How do you feel about your local library?
