Curbside Communicator

curbside communicator steps


Step #1. Place your holds to request items available at Lansing Library, or many other libraries.

Place your holds in the SWAN Mobile App, the online catalog, or by phoning the library.

Learn how to place a hold on an item.

Step #2. Wait for the library to contact you

Library staff gather available items and place them on the hold shelf.

You will receive a hold pickup notice in your preferred notification method: email/text/phone. 

Step #3. After you are notified, Go to the Library

Drive to the library, and park in a numbered parking space on Indiana Avenue.  Remain in your vehicle to maintain social distancing.

Step #4. Use Curbside Communicator to alert the library you have arrived

Text "here" to 708-858-5103
or click the Curbside Pickup link in the SWAN App,

or, use the web-based interface on your smartphone. 

Answer the prompts. Staff will gather your holds, and check them out.

Step #5. Library staff delivers your items to your vehicle.

If you also have items to return, do not give them directly to staff but return items to the drive-up drop-box in the rear parking lot.
