Your Oak Park Public Library card gives you access to items via SWAN, a multi-type library consortium of 77 public, special, and academic libraries with a combined collection of 1.4 million unique titles and 7.9 million volumes that grows larger every day. There are 70 languages (from Arabic to Zulu) represented in SWAN's diverse and comprehensive catalog.

Search SWAN to see if you can request your item online. Learn more about requests.
