"Pelicans" on Star Island 
 
A newly released book depicting life as a seasonal worker on Star Island is a photographic journey into life as a "Pelican." As a visitor to Star Island, author Jennifer Moore has long been fascinated by the staff who work behind the scenes to make Star Island a serene and memorable experience. Moore and photojournalist Anna Solo collaborated on the book which is called "Pelicans: Seasonal Workers of Star Island," and offers an intimate look into this unique island way of life. Both Jennifer and Anna will be here on Tuesday, November 19 at 6:30pm presenting about their book and will have copies available to purchase at the event.

Bring Us Your Cloth Bags
 
We are trying to be greener here at the library and want to have a large supply of cloth bags to be able to give out to our patrons when they ask for a bag. If you have extras (and who doesn't?) please drop them off at the circulation desk. We really want to stop handing out plastic bags. We can also use them for the book sale! If you regularly ask us for a bag, consider designating a reusable bag as your library bag and getting in the habit of bringing it with you!
D & D

Dungeons and Dragons groups for adults and kids have been active and popular lately in the library. Dungeon Masters are needed to keep this popular event alive. Please contact Aimee (a.lockhardt@dover.nh.gov) if you are interested. In the meantime, check the calendar to see when the sessions are taking place. Our volunteers are in flux, and thus, so are our event times!  
Media Book Drop  
 
Patrons have been asking for it and now it's finally here! Media items which we didn't want returned with books, can be returned in the tall, slender, silver media drop located next to the Children's Room entrance door. Please return audiobooks and music CDs ONLY in the media drop! Thank you!

The Book Sale continues in November with great deals on thousands of remaining books. During November 4 - 10, the remainder of the items will be sold for the bargain price of just $1.00 per bag or boxful. Any leftover books will be given away for free beginning Tuesday, November 12.
