Library Friends announce Tile Painting FUNdraiser

​The Friends of the Dover Library have announced the return of their popular Tile Painting FUNdraiser.

Everyone from very young children, to teens and adults will have an opportunity to design and paint tiles that will be permanently displayed inside the library. The tiles will not only add beauty to the space, but also present a unique way to celebrate the Dover community. Infants can leave a handprint, finger-painters can create a rainbow of color, or more accomplished artists can paint a tile inspired by a favorite book or their own family.

Tiles are $100 for one, $175 for two and $250 for three. Profits fund library programs, technology, unique items and toys, digital subscriptions, museum passes and more.

The Friends of the Dover Library are grateful to be partnering with Park Street Books for this third edition of the Tile Painting FUNdraiser. Park Street Books will hold three painting workshops at the library, during which they will provide all the materials, as well as guidance and instructions on how to create your masterpiece. If you can’t make it to one of the workshops, Park Street Books will welcome anyone who purchased a tile from now to June 30, 2022, during regular business hours. Park Street Books is located at 504 Main St in Medfield.

Workshop dates and times are Wednesday, April 6, from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesday, May 4, from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.; and Wednesday, June 8, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

All tiles should be painted by June 30, and should be installed by the end of the Summer Reading Program.

Tiles can be purchased in person at the two workshops held at the library, or at

​If you choose to paint your tile at Park Street Books, your tile needs to be purchased prior to going in; your receipt will be needed for Park Street Books to provide you with a tile and the painting materials.
