The Dover Public Library is a great community library because of its many supporters. Here are some ways to get involved:
Honor the memory of a friend or relative by purchasing a book in his/her memory for the library's collection. Select a category that reflects the loved one's interest or allow the library to purchase a book in our area of greatest need. The chosen book(s) will carry a bookplate inscribed with both your names; the family of the deceased will receive a card that notifies them of your memorial gift. The donations are also recognized in the library's newsletter.
You may wish to make a donation to support a particular department, service, portion of the collection or need of the library. Your gift, for example, can be directed to pay for a program or speaker, purchase meeting room equipment, or buy storytime supplies for the Children's Department. Let us know what area you would like to provide financial help for and we'll find a project that matches your level of contribution. Your contribution will be recognized in the library's newsletter. Contact Jim Gill at 330-343-6123 for more information.
"The Mission of the Friends of the Library is to enhance the Dover Public Library so that it may fulfill its literary, educational, technological, community and cultural purposes."
