DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover’s old library could soon be sold.

WBOC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2faYwDO) that the Dover City Council voted Monday for the property, which is worth more than $1.6 million, to be considered as surplus and to be listed for sale. The building has been unused since the opening of the current public library.

Mayor Robin Christiansen says the city has already gotten offers about the property, including from Wesley College, but there could be a wider range of offers following the listing.

The mayor and city council can act on any written offer, but that process could take months.

Councilman David Anderson says the city should consider offers from community groups and nonprofits, not just the most expensive offers from private firms.
