Concluding comments of Marjorie Anne Moore:

Many more pictures could and perhaps should have been taken to fully show all the varied and diverse activities that go on both in full view of the public and behind the scenes at the Bangor Public Library. However, I have tried to give the viewers of these photos a bird's-eye-view of some of the highlights of the activities carried out in their library. It is my hope that through these pictures the viewer will have a better understanding and appreciation of one of the community's prime sources of educational as well as recreational materials.
