SWAN is here

 

We have joined the SWAN network of 98 libraries. More books! More movies! More music! The library catalog is bigger with 729% more materials available in our old catalog.

 

What does this mean for me?

 

•  A larger catalog means access to more of what you love
•  Gain access to member library’s special collections
•  Titles are now available in 226 languages
•  You can select “Pick Up Anywhere” if you want to place holds on materials in the catalog

   and pick them up at a specific location that might be closer to work or home.

•  New notification choices to manage your account
•  Your library card will work at any of the 97 SWAN public library locations.

 

 

What you should do now

 

Check your PIN – If you did not change your PIN to all numbers, it will be the last 4 digits of the primary phone number in your account. You can change your pin to an all numeric PIN of your choosing.

 

Check your account information – is your phone number and email address up to date ?

 

Sign up online or in the Library to have notifications for holds, courtesy, overdue, and billing delivered via text messages. Shoutbomb has ended as our text notification system and SWAN is now that service provider. Access your account online through “My Account”, selecting “Set Up Text Messaging” or ask Circulation staff for help.

 

Need help with these updates? Call us at (630) 879-1393, email or text us.

 

Watch patron tutorials here.

 

Your library card will work at any of the public libraries in the SWAN consortium. You may select “Pick Up Anywhere” if you want to place holds on materials in the catalog and pick them up at a specific location that might be closer to work or home.
