Upcoming Events
Snapology Workshop
Join us on Saturday, May 14 at 2pm for a workshop with Snapology of Dover! In this Encanto-inspired Lego bricks workshop, participants will embrace their inner magic and develop models representing the qualities that make them special. Using their imaginations, they will get a clear understanding of how they would help the community with their special gifts. We will give them challenges that will help develop their engineering and critical thinking skills in a creative, fun, and musical way. This activity is best suited for children ages 5-9. Registration is required.

Evening of Poetry
The Dover Public Library cordially invites you to attend an “Evening of Poetry” on Monday, May 23 at 6:30pm. All poets who participated in the library’s 20th Annual Poetry Contest are invited to read their poetry at this event. The general public is encouraged to come and enjoy the readings. This event will take place on the library lawn (rain location is the library's Lecture Hall).
