Library Curbside Service Begins June 15

We are happy to report, the Library will be resuming our curbside pickup of materials on Monday, June 15.  Pickup will be available between 12:00 noon and 6:00 pm Monday, June 15 through Friday, June 19.  Materials on hold from before the shutdown will be available for pickup through June 23.  New requests will be processed on an ongoing basis.

Using the Library’s catalog to request items will be the most efficient way to get exactly what you want. When placing a hold for an item Dexter does not own, but shows as available at another library, you may get the message that the hold cannot be placed.  This just means any copies reside at libraries which have not restored full interlibrary loan.  Please make a note of the title and try again after a week.
