June 22, 2022

The Dover Public Library is excited to announce that starting July 1, we will no longer charge late fees for overdue materials!  DPL joins a growing nationwide trend of eliminating fines which supports our library's commitment to equity of access. Although the library will no longer charge late fees, patrons will still be responsible for the replacement cost of items that are lost, damaged, or not returned within 60 days.  With the start of our fine-free status, the library staff looks forward to providing access to all the library has to offer to every member of our community!
