Dover Public Library
The Dover Public Library is an information center meeting the educational, informational, recreational, and cultural needs of a diverse population through library collections and library services with a well-trained staff available to promote library resources and to assist with their use. The Dover Public Library has programs for adults, teens and children.
The Dover Library Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by the City of Dover to support the construction of a new library facility in the heart of downtown Dover. The Foundation was formed to widen eligibility for grants and receive donations for the Library's capital campaign. With the capital campaign concluded, in 2013, the Foundation was separated from the City and became an independent entity. The Foundation runs an Annual Appeal and Memorial Brick Sales. In 2015, after an anonymous donation of $15,000 arrived and the Library was named as a beneficiary in a supporter's Last Will and Testament, the Board of Directors of the Foundation created a Permanent Endowment for the long-term support of the Library. The Book's goal is to raise $500,000 in the Endowment Account. For more information about donating or purchasing a Memorial Brick, please call 302-736-7032.
