Small Town Feel - High Tech Functionality
New digital technology at the Dover Free Library---funded by a bequest from former library patron, Marie Waugh---enables library patrons, community members and guest presenters to stream digital media, share high-definition video, and enjoy crisp Blu-ray and 3D entertainment in the comfortable confines of the Vermont Community Room. The Library worked together with Garafalo's TV and Appliance in Brattleboro to provide the new digital package which includes theater-style surround sound, multi-media projector and streaming device."It's our hope that these media facilities will augment the Library's mission to bring patrons together with a variety of guests for learning and the exchange of ideas." -- Jason Staloff, Library Trustee. Adding this type of technology to the Library is just one more example of this small library moving forward to provide up-to-date technology to area residents. Dover Free Library has even recently been contacted by the Vermont State Librarian's office to discuss the possibility of making the Library a public access video teleconferencing location in the southern part of the State. The new equipment may be utilized by contacting the Dover Free Library by telephone or here to complete an application.
