Drop-In Virtual Story Times for all ages will be offered on Tuesdays at 10:30 am on our DDL facebook page from June 23 to August 11.

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.

To help our community while the Library is closed, we are now offering online library card registration.
Please fill out the form below to apply for a limited, 90-day Dexter District Library borrower’s card.
We will provide your card information via e-mail and send your physical card to your home address via standard postal mail.
A valid card is required to access the Library’s electronic content. This content is always available and can be accessed from home during this time of restricted travel.
Once everyone is free to travel, we will require you visit to the Library building to complete the registration process and extend the expiration date of your card beyond the initial 90 days.
Our borrower’s cards are only available to residents of the Dexter School District. If you reside outside our service area, please check with your home library about getting a card.
