About The Dover Town Library

Welcome to the Dover Town Library! Since the establishment of a free public library in Dover in 1894, the town has recognized the need for the preservation of knowledge and ideas, and access to that information for all. That recognition continues today within the walls of the Dover Town Library, where you will find a warm and welcoming environment providing traditional services that support the reading and informational needs and interests of all of our patrons in a variety of formats, including print and multimedia.

In addition, we strive to identify the emerging technologies that will maximize access to information for the entire community, and provide a Library without walls that allows for access to many digital resources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via an internet connection.
