The SWAN catalog is the library’s listing of everything we own for you to check out – and it lists all of the items that 80 other area libraries own as well!  For any of these items, you can see whether or not they are checked out.  With this catalog and an up-to-date library card, you can reserve items from other libraries and we will have these items sent here (interlibrary loan) for you to pick up and check out.  When you create and login to your online account, you can also renew items, view your fines, and pay bills. 

If you give us your email address, it will be added your account and you will be linked to these services:

  • Courtesy notice three days before all items are due with a link to renew items
  • Pay fines online
  • Overdue notices
  • Hold pickup (interlibrary loan) notices


Use these links to view videos
(be sure that your sound is turned on) that will show you
how to use the various features of the catalog and your account.
