Stephen King’s Scary Library Needs $9 Million Repair: Muni Deals

“Readers of Stephen King’s novel “It” know the Bangor Public Library as a hiding spot for the title character, a deranged clown on a murderous rampage. In real life, the library is falling apart. Voters in the Maine riverfront town of 33,000 will decide tomorrow whether to back a $3 million tax-exempt bond issue to help repair the library’s 101-year-old copper roof. A “yes” vote would help unlock a matching gift from Bangor’s most famous couple, Stephen and Tabitha King.” (via Businessweek)
