Summer Reading Community Read

In honor of this year's theme, Oceans of Possibilities, we're inviting you to join us in reading either The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway or The Young Man and the Sea by Rodman Philbrick. We'll have many copies at the desk to check out and will be giving away even more for FREE around downtown Dover at local businesses!

Participate in the program by reading and discussing the book with family, friends, book clubs and neighbors. Then join in on any of the events we have inspired by the book!
