When you need help finding information you can ask a Reference Librarian. They know the library's resources and are here to help.

We have all sorts of information on the unusual stuff you can borrow from the library, just click on "Yes, the Library has that!" button. From digital microscopes to State Park passes, from Maker Kits to our telescope we're sure we've got something that will surprise you! Take a look at what we've got and give Reference a call at 947-8336, send us an email at reference@bangorpubliclibrary.org, or stop by to find out how to reserve your nifty device, tool, or kit today!
