Talk by NH Fish and Game's James Benvenuti and Cora, his Labrador Puppy Partner

On Wednesday, February 1 at 7pm, the Dover Public Library will present a talk by NH Fish and Game Conservation Officer James  Benvenuti and his new partner, Cora, a Labrador Retriever puppy. James Benvenuti  grew up hunting and fishing in Newmarket. He studied conservation law enforcement in Maine and has been with New Hampshire Fish and Game for five years. Cora has been with New Hampshire Fish and Game since September 2016.
Conservation Officers work with their canine partners to conduct tracks and area searches, to detect evidence, to identify fish and wildlife patterns, and to help with search and rescue activities. Join us for an entertaining evening as Officer Benvenuti explains what NH Fish and Game conservation officers do, and how Cora is being trained.  
This program is free and everyone is welcome. For more information, call the Dover Public Library at 603-516-6050.

Ramblin' Richard performs "Familiar Songs, Unfamiliar Stories" January 17, 7pm

     The Friends of the Dover Public Library are pleased to host a performance by noted musician and song historian Richard Kruppa, aka “Ramblin’ Richard”, on Tuesday, January 17 at 7pm. This entertaining program will bring to light the fascinating, and largely unknown, stories behind some beloved American classics such as “Old Folks at Home (Swanee River)”, “Alexander’s Ragtime Band”, and “Goodnight, Irene”.
     Find out what tune rose to popularity again after nearly 100 years; how “God Bless America” and “This Land is Your Land” are related; and what favorite old American song got its songwriter released from prisons---twice!
     A retired professor, Richard accompanies himself on acoustic instruments including guitar, 5-string banjo, and baritone ukulele. A member of the New England Foundation for the Arts, Richard studied American folk and gospel music and, through his performances, enjoys telling the “rest of the story” underlying historic and cherished American songs from many decades. His relaxed, comfortable, and casual style establishes a wonderful rapport with his audience.
      This program is free and all are welcome to attend in the Library’s Lecture Hall. For more information, please call the Dover Public Library at 603-516-6050.
