Kindles Circulating at the Dover Library!

In late 2016 the Dover Plains Library was selected by the Mid-Hudson Library System to receive a $1200 grant for Kindle Paperwhites to be circulated—with a special interest in serving the active senior population in the community!!! The grant money was provided by New York State.
The Kindles have been pre-loaded with bestsellers, but special requests for specific books are also being accepted.
One-on-one tutoring is available. There is a $25 refundable security deposit, payable by cash or check. The loan period is 3 weeks. Stop in and check out a Kindle today!

Library ELF – A New Library Service!

Library ELF is a web-based tool for library users to keep track of their library items.

Designed with the busy or avid library user in mind, ELF is ideal for families with multiple library cards or for individuals who would benefit from email or text notifications and reminders.

It can help keep track of:

  • Due dates
  • Overdue materials
  • Requested items ready for pickup
  • Your reading history

Library Elf is simple because you can choose:

  • Notifications via text or email
  • Customizable dates of notification
  • Consolidated notifications
  • To manage more than one library account at once

logoELF is provided through funds from the Mid-Hudson Library System for 1 year. While the basic ELF reminder service is free, through our collaboration with Mid-Hudson Library System we are able to offer the full premium service to our patrons.Library Elf

To sign up for Library ELF you need your library card barcode and PIN. Go to the Dover Plains Library ELF page by clicking the Library ELF icon on the right, or by scrolling to the bottom right of our website and clicking that icon.
