Booksale prices will be further reduced on Wednesday, October 29, and during Week #2 of the booksale, November 3-8, the remainder of the items will be sold for the bargain price of just $1.00 per bag or boxful. Any leftover books will be given away for free beginning Monday, November 10.
All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Library, a 501(c)3 charitable organization which last year donated over $15,000 to the library for museum passes, children’s and adult programs, furnishings and equipment. Applications to join the Friends of the Library are available at the library’s circulation desk.
Membership is $10 annually or $7 for seniors. Friends who work at the booksale receive a 50% discount on purchases. Call 516-6050 for more information.

Lisa Gardner, will visit the Dover Public Library for a supremely entertaining author talk and book signing on Wednesday, October 15 at 7pm. Lisa has authored 30 novels with over 22 million copies in print in 30 countries. Her success crosses into the small screen with four of her novels becoming movies.
Lisa has created three popular detective series including six Quincy & Rainie suspense thrillers (The FBI Profiler Series) set in Oregon, seven D.D. Warren novels featuring a feisty Boston homicide detective (female), and three books in the Tessa Leoni, former state trooper turned New Hampshire private investigator, series.
The International Thriller Writers have nominated “Touch & Go” (a Tessa Leoni book) for 2014’s Best Hardcover of the Year. This is Lisa’s 3rd nomination for this award and her novel “The Neighbor” (D.D. Warren series) won this category in 2010.
Lisa Gardner’s latest published novel is a D.D. Warren thriller, “Fear Nothing”, which came out in January 2014, and her next suspense novel (a Tessa Leoni book) will be “Crash & Burn” to be published in February 2015.
Lisa lives in New Hampshire with her auto-racing husband and black-diamond skiing daughter. She spends her days writing in her loft with two barky shelties and one silly puppy. The Dover Public Library is thrilled to be able to coax Lisa out of her cozy White Mountains niche for an evening in Dover. Please join us!
