Lending Library Launches
It's official: You can now visit the Center, browse, and borrow some popular titles. You can check out and take these books and DVDs home to peruse at your leisure.
The Lending Library is open to anyone with an Augustana College library card. Local residents in Rock Island, Whiteside, and Henry (Illinois) counties with a public library card will be able to receive Augustana/Swenson Center library cards.

Many thanks to the American Scandinavian Association at Augustana (ASA) for their generous support to acquire these—and many more—new books. We encourage members of ASA to sign-up for a Swenson Center public patron library card!
