Sign Up for a Haunted Library Escape Room!

In honor of National Library Week we'll be doing TWO adult escape rooms on Tuesday, April 9th at 6pm and 7pm! Join us to solve the mystery of the Haunted Library. OoOoOOoooo!

In 1959, Librarian Anne Leach passed away during a Trustees meeting. Since that day strange noises can be heard in the library, particularly at closing when rooms are dark and silent. Last week a librarian discovered a mysterious box. Can you help us open the box and finally lay Miss Leach to rest? Adults only. Registration required.
To register sign up through our event calendar online at library.dover.nh.gov or call the library at (603) 516-6050.

You do not need a library card to participate in this program (but if you live or work in Dover, why wouldn't you get yourself a FREE library card anyway?!)
