COVID-19 Update

Some SWAN libraries are now open for curbside pickup. Please refer to your local library’s website for more information and details on the curbside pickup process. Find your home library.

Curbside pickup is currently available to home library patrons only – if your library doesn’t offer curbside pickup, you won’t be able to get items from another library that does. In addition, delivery is not available between libraries, so it is not possible to request items for pickup from another library.

This information was last updated May 15th, 2020 – dates are subject to change based on the Illinois Stay-At-Home order and public health recommendations.

Library cards

Is your card expiring?

All cards expiring between January 1 and June 30, 2020 have been extended to July 4th.

No card?

Most SWAN public libraries now offer online cards that will give you access to your library’s digital resources, including eBooks, eAudio, databases, and streaming services.

If your library participates, you’ll see a “Sign Up” button on your library catalog.
