Summer Reading at Dover Public Library
Green and White, Reading Unites! will begin on Monday, June 8 and continue to Friday, July 31. In an effort to bring the community together during this challenging time, we will set one goal for readers of all ages. Can kids, teens, and adults altogether read 3,000 books during the eight-week summer reading program? Watch the progress on the book tracker on the front lawn of the library. At the end of the program when the goal is met (we know you can do it!) everyone who participated will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win one of many gift cards. All prizes will be from Dover businesses in order to support our city.
The summer reading program for 2020 will look different from past years, but will still include books, crafts, activities, and prizes. Each week during the program, families can take home a “Summer Fun Bag” which will include a craft, a STEM activity, and some small toys. The first bag will also include a “Writing Box” for families to use throughout the program. Each week a new “Write About It” challenge will be offered. There will be virtual storytimes, book groups, and other online activities to engage patrons of all ages.
To join in the challenge, go to the website library.dover.nh.gov and register for the program. After June 8 you can start logging the books you read. Check the online calendar for all of our virtual programs. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com or call 603-516-6052.
