Pirates invade the Bangor Public Library! 

Pirates invaded the Bangor Public Library this morning, as story hour came alive.Dozens of kids came dressed in costume, to the pirate party in the story room.Librarian Maryanne Linzikos says it’s a great way for kids to beat the winter doldrums and enjoy their vacation, while still being inspired to read.Kids attending the party were treated to some pirate snacks, pirate games, and pirate arts and craft projects.Even the story had a nautical theme today….it was called”how i became a pirate”.Linzikos says she can’t believe how many kids showed up to today’s celebration.”Especially with the weather the way it is today, i’m surprised we got such a good turnout. and i’m amazed…they must have been waiting for this, is all i can say…to get their mom’s to come out and enjoy themselves…but they look wonderful…look at them….they’re adorable.”We’re told the library is planning a poetry party for the next school vacation, which runs in April.For more information on children’s activities, at the library, you can log on to www.bpl.lib.me.us.
