There are lots of great events planned at the Dover Public Library for the April school vacation, designed to keep the whole family entertained.
On Monday, April 24 at 6:30pm, your teddy bear (or other stuffed friend) is cordially invited to spend the night in the library! At the Teddy Bear Sleepover, you and your stuffed friend will enjoy some stories, crafts, and a snack together. Settle your friend in for the night before you leave, and then pick him up in the Children's Room anytime after 12pm the next day. You will get a picture showing how much fun your stuffed buddy had at the library! Don't forget to wear your pajamas too!!!
“Let’s Play Outside” is featured on Tuesday, April 25 from 2-4pm: run, jump, skip, and play! Join us on the front lawn of the library for some good old-fashioned outdoor fun. We will provide balls, jump ropes, hula hoops, and other toys. After playtime, enjoy a healthy snack. The program will be weather dependent, so please call the library if you have any questions.
