The Dover Public Library is a Family Place!
 
Our library has joined the Family Place Libraries, a nationwide network of children's librarians who embrace the fact that literacy begins at birth, and libraries can help build healthy communities by nourishing healthy families. We will have a five week series of Parent/Child workshops for families with children ages 1 - 4. Families have the opportunity to spend time together, make new connections, and speak with a different community resources professional each week. The series begins on Saturday, January 4 and ends on February 1. Each session is one hour and begins at 11:00am . Please register for this event at library.dover.nh.gov or 516-6052.
