Everything Everything and You and Me and Him Book Covers
The Teens’ Top Ten list is created by teens. Each year, teens nominate and vote on their favorite books from the previous year.

This year, the Dover Public Library was a recipient of the Teens’ Top Ten Giveaway funded by The Dollar General Literacy Foundation, which means we have all twenty-six teen-chosen nominees circulating in the library. Each one has a special sticker marking them as a Nominee. Stop in and check them out!

Want to have a taste of the Teens’ Top Ten books? Come to our Book Tasting event on Tuesday September 20 at 3:00 PM. Also join us Thursdays September 8 and October 6 at 3:00 PM to help the YA Crew with a special Teens’ Top Ten video project.

Most importantly, don’t forget to vote for your favorites online! Voting runs through Teen Read Week: October 15. The winning books will be announced the following week.

 


Shuddersome: Tales of Poe Preview

 

Little_TheaterThe Little Theatre of Tuscarawas County will present a preview of the regional premiere of Shuddersome: Tales of Poe on Saturday, August 13th at 7:00pm at the Dover Public Library.

Directed by Candice McMath, this one-act of selected works of Edgar Allan Poe adapted by Lindsay Price includes short stories (The Black Cat, The Cask of Amontillado, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Oval Portrait, Lionizing, The Masque of the Red Death) and poetry (“The Bells” and “The Raven”). Spectres, ghouls and ghosts come alive in this vivid theatrical adaptation of some of Poe’s best-known works. This spine-tingling night of theatre will have you glancing nervously over your shoulder as Poe’s words rise up like corpses from the grave. (Be careful. Do you hear that tap, tap, tapping?)

Performances are scheduled August 25-28 and September 1-4. All performances are at 8:00 pm except Sunday matinees at 2:30 pm at the Little Theatre of Tuscarawas County located at 466 Carrie Ave NW in New Philadelphia. Adult tickets are $13 and student tickets are $8 with a voucher and a can of food. Food collected will be distributed to local food pantries. Student ticket vouchers will be mailed to local schools in mid-August or can be obtained by contacting the director at candicermcmath@gmail.com. Tickets are available by calling 330-308- 6400 or at www.TheLittleTheatreOnline.org.Shuddersome_art
