The U.S. Department of State will honor the Dover library with a Special Recognition Award during a ceremony in Washington, D.C. later this month.

Dover's decision to become a Passport Acceptance Facility last year inspired other libraries across the state to follow suit, providing applicants with more convenient locations when applying for passports.
