Friends of Dover Area Community Library

Friends of Dover Area Community Library is made up of enthusiastic library supporters willing to volunteer their time to raise money and community awareness on behalf of the Library.  The Dover Friends organize and carry out several annual fundraisers, including a miniature in-house book sale, a candy sale, and a greeting card sale. Additionally, the Dover Friends organize a large-scale book sale every September. These events are planned, advertised, and carried out by members of the Friend’s group.  The money raised by the committee helps with the operating costs of the library.

The Dover Area Community Library Friends meet bi-monthly on the second Monday of the month (January, March, May, July, September, November) in the library.  New members are always welcome, as are new ideas and plenty of enthusiasm for libraries.
