We Are Now a Field Goods Pick-up Site

No time to shop? Local produce delivery is coming to our library!Image result for field goods
The library is now a Field Goods’ pick-up location for locally-grown fruits and vegetables with deliveries every Friday!
Field Goods is a year-round local produce delivery service; customers receive 5 to 8 different fruit and vegetables (depending on bag size),
plus optional add-ons. Bags cost $16 to $32 per week, and can be put on hold at any time. It’s flexible!

Each bag sold earns the library $1 for programming. The order deadline for a Friday delivery is Tuesday at 11:59 pm.
Field Goods purchases everything directly from over 80 small farms in the region. All of the produce is non-GMO, and most is organically grown.

Our New Touch Screen Computers Are Here!

The Dover Library has undergone an amazing technology upgrade! We received a generous additional $6000 dollars in bullet aid from Senator Sue Serino, and the money has been put toward purchasing 8 new touch screen computers for public access. The new touch screen computers are a welcome relief from the previous Windows XP computers that were no longer privy to Microsoft security updates or support. And the computers have Microsoft Office 365, which means we’ll always be able to offer patrons the latest version of Word, Excel, etc.

In 2016, 965 unique users used our public PCs for a total of 8,749 Internet sessions with over 5,028 total hours logged.
Thank you, Senator Serino! One-on-one assistance with navigating the new tech is available.
