Young Reader Forgoes Birthday Gifts to Benefit Library 

A young library lover is forgoing birthday gifts this year.

Instead, she’s asking friends to donate to the Bangor Public Library.

Right now, the library is raising funds for interior renovations.

For her 8th birthday, Ingrid Schaefer told her parents she’d like to raise $1,000 so her name could be forever etched on the donor wall planned for the new glass atrium.

“Well I already have a lot of stuff and I love the Bangor Public Library so I wanted to donate money to it,” said Ingrid.
