At the St. Joseph Township- Swearingen Memorial Library, you will find big city library services provided with a small town friendliness.

The library has a weekly email newsletter!  If you would like to sign up for our newsletter, go to the "Wowbrary" link on the left and follow the instructions.  The newsletters come out every Saturday.  It announces new materials added during the week as well as upcoming events happening at the library.


To comply with the Governor's 'shelter in place' order, the St. Joseph Township-Swearingen Memorial Library will close at Saturday, March 21st at 3 pm. and stay closed through April 30th, barring further orders from the Governor.  The book drop will be open to drop your materials off, including DVDs and Audiobooks. Please put rubber bands around DVD and Audio cases to keep them from falling open.  Fines will not be charged for overdues during this time.  Please email the library if you would like to renew items.  Don't forget that we have Overdrive (Libby) and Cloud Library available for downloadable ebooks and e-audiobooks.  You can email the library to receive the ebook pamphlet or if you need assistance with this service.  Susan, our Librarian, is reading a story every day on Facebook Live on the library's Facebook page.
