Curbside Pick Up: How To

When your holds are ready for pick-up, you will receive an automated hold notice from SWAN by email, text, or phone (whichever method you have chosen for your account).

When you arrive at the Library, you can pick up your holds – no appointment needed:

  • Park your car (if driving)
  • Call the Circulation Department at (630) 879-1393 ext. 100
  • Provide your Library card number
  • Circulation will put the bagged items on the curbside pickup table (located outside the front doors under the portico) for you to collect.
