On the May 4 ballot, the Dover Public Library is proposing the renewal of a 1-mil operating levy for 5 years. This levy is not a tax increase and raises $351,000 annually, providing 30% of the library’s funds. It will cost $2.07/month for the owner of a home valued at $100,000.
Levy funds will be used for the library’s operating expenses, including the purchase of materials, programming for all ages, and services to the community such as homebound delivery and computer classes. If the levy does not pass, the library will make changes beginning 2022, including changing hours, staffing, reducing new materials and reducing programming. Learn more about the levy here.
The library is open Monday – Friday, 9a – 6p, and Saturday, 9a – 2p. Please visit doverlibrary.org for a list of events and programming.
