Visit Dover's newest library!

The Woodman Institute Museum (182 Central Avenue, Dover NH) has just announced that their Keefe House Library (around the corner from the main buildings at 15 Summer St.) will be now open by appointment for family research and study of the area's history. Admission is free for members and available at a minimal cost for non-members.

Collections (some not yet catalogued) include Dover, state, and Civil War history, family genealogies and town and other local histories. There is some duplication with the collections in the Dover Public Library's Historical Room, but the museum houses many unique items as well. Thousands of early Dover town and city documents can also be discovered, as well as school records up to about 1950. Wi-Fi is available on site so personal computers may be used. The museum does not provide its own computer access at this time.

Persons interested in library use at the Keefe House are asked to contact the museum (603-742-1038)to make an appointment. At this time, volunteers are usually available if needed on Thursdays from 12Noon to 3pm. Appointments for other days may be made in advance.

The Woodman Institute Museum is now open for the season, Wed--Sun 12:30--4:30pm and a family membership is just $35!
