Bangor Public Library Closing for 1 Week 

The Bangor Public Library will be closed for a week, starting this Sunday.Forty-two employees are taking four unpaid furlough days.Library Director Barbara McDade says rather than lay people off, they decided to take furlough days to cut costs.The library will open back up on Monday, December 28th.McDade says some regulars at the library are disappointed.”They are a little upset but they understand. They understand money is tight everywhere, money is tight in the city. But they would like to have it over.”McDade is asking folks to try and either return their books before Sunday, or after they open back up.They would prefer books are not left in the drop-off slot for such an extended time.
