The Bangor Public Library is a treasure for its city and the region, and should be treated as one. It should not be used by the city as a substitute for a daytime homeless shelter, or one of the only places in town where one can find a public restroom.
The city of Bangor can and should deal with its growing homeless population and it can and should provide public restrooms for its citizens and visitors.
