Here’s how curbside pickup works:
- Log in to your Library Account using the online catalog or the SWAN Library app.
- Search for items, and place a hold on what you'd like to borrow.
- Once the item becomes available, you’ll receive a notification from firstname.lastname@example.org or a phone call.
- When you have received your notification, come to the library during curbside hours (Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.)
- Park in a designated curbside pickup spot, and text check in to 630-668-9440. Or, you can click the link on our website or use the link in the SWAN app. Follow the directions we send via text.
- Stay in your vehicle with the windows rolled up, and pop your trunk. If your trunk isn’t accessible, we will leave your materials on a bench, and you can come get the bag when we walk away.
- Curbside Pickup will be suspended in the event of extreme weather that could be hazardous and unsafe for staff. When in doubt, call us at 630-653-0755 to find out if the service is available.
- Loan periods remain the same as always: 7 days for DVDs and video games, and 21 days for everything else.
- Please return items in the drive-up return bin. We are unable to take materials from you directly.

Email your document to email@example.com for staff to print. We can accept many Microsoft file types, but, if possible, sending us a PDF is best. (If you need help doing that, please email us.) Please indicate how many copies are needed. When your document is ready, we will email you with directions on how to use Curbside Pickup to receive your document. We will print 1-20 pages free of cost for curbside pickup. If your document is over 20 pages, we will charge a fee. At this time, we can only accept jobs over 20 pages from Carol Stream Library cardholders. A bill for the fee will be added to your Library account.
For projects under 20 pages: Copy requests 20 pages and under are free. Contact us via curbside chat or call the Adult Services Department 630-344-6123 when you are at the Library in a curbside spot or in the parking lot. Please wait in your car or 10 feet away from the front door while a staff person comes out to get the document(s) that need to be copied. Staff will retrieve and return your documents to you via tray or clipboard.
For projects over 20 pages: Larger projects or detailed requests need to be arranged by appointment in order to schedule and arrange payment. Additional pages will be charged at 10 cents per print page. Please provide detailed instructions. If you wish to schedule an appointment or ask us questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630-344-6123. At this time, we can only accept jobs over 20 pages from Carol Stream Library cardholders. A bill for the fee will be added to your Library account.

Curbside pickup without a car:
You’re welcome to walk or bike to the Library to pickup your materials. Follow the same instructions as for cars. We will bring items out and leave them on a bench. You may pick up your items once Library staff has gone back into the building.
