New Feature Search Catalog for DEX items

When you need a good read and want to know what is available today at the library visit our website and find our new link in the upper right hand corner of our page.   Click the link here to start your search.   The items listed are owned by the Dexter Free Library.   Click on the Title (see screen shot below).   Where you see the library name, review the status.   If it says “available…” we have it at the library and you will be able to come and pick it up.   Under “Select an Action” choose  “Place Hold”.  Your request will be sent to us immediately.   We will call you and get it ready for pickup.

If you need help or have questions contact us at 315-639-6785.



Even though we cannot meet in person at the library JUST 4 FUN on Saturday mornings, we can continue to provide opportunities for you and your children to try something new and enjoy Saturday with a Take & Make project.

Take & Make projects will be revealed each week on Saturday morning via social media (Facebook and Instagram). The project materials/kits may be reserved by messaging us on Facebook, calling the library at 315-639-6785 or via email at Kits reserved (1 kit per child) must be picked up before 12pm on Saturday morning.

If we have “leftover” kits from Saturday morning a notice will be posted via social media the following Tuesday. These can be reserved during our normal operating hours. Kits will be held until closing (6pm) on Thursday.

The following Saturday a new project will be announced.
