Continuing Events


Play Your Cards Right:

Tuesdays from 4 pm - 6 pm.

This group is open to all and it's free! It's a chance to learn, teach, or play your favorite card game. The game being taught each session will change depending on who's willing to teach, and what folks want to learn.

If you just feel like playing, you can do that too! We'll have tables available for both.

Brought to you by AARP and Bangor Public Library.


Adult Coloring Night

Join us to color away some stress and brighten your day. We supply the coloring sheets and pens/pencils/crayons and you bring your creativity. Sometimes it's nice to color inside the lines.
