The Bangor Public Library serves as the area research and reference center for northern and eastern Maine.
Since the late 1800s Jordan Pond House has been a favorite stop for visitors on Mt. Desert Island. Located in Acadia National Park it has become world famous for its Tea & Popovers. The Children’s Department at the Bangor Public Library is thrilled to participate in The Acadia Centennial Celebration and commemorate this wonderful institution by offering a Children’s Tea & Popover event to be held at the Bangor Public Library on September 3rd 2016 at 11 AM. The Library will also have a microscope on hand for children to view some of the flora and fauna native to the park. Registration for this event will begin on June 18, 2016.
