Stephen and Tabitha King have agreed to pay $3 million to overhaul their 100-year-old hometown library in Maine, as long as another $6 million is raised from other sources. Tabitha King serves on the building committee of the Bangor Public Library, which is planning a $9 million modernization. One of the library’s most pressing needs is a new roof to protect its collection, described as the biggest in northern New England. The library’s current copper roof was installed in 1912 when the library was built, and library officials said it is beyond repair.
