Search for books and other materials easily using the new and improved Clinton Essex Franklin Library System Catalog.

You can search for books in the Saranac Lake Free Library or in ANY of the Libraries in the tri-county system, as well as view your account and renew items you already have borrowed.

  •  To log in to your account enter your 14 digit library account number (that is the barcode number on the back of your library card) AND your four digit PIN number.  If you don't know your PIN number contact the library for your account information.
  • Look for the orange TUTORIAL tab on the right hand side of the screen to help you navigate our new catalog. If you'd prefer to use our classic catalog set up there is a link in the bottom right corner of the new catalog's main page.
