Abstract: Elmhurst Public Library leaders felt like the library was giving more than it was getting and have withdrawn from a 77-member library consortium that enables patrons to borrow books and other materials from other libraries. The library no longer holds membership in System Wide Automatic Network (SWAN), a consortium of public, specialty and academic libraries that has a combined catalog of 6 to 8 million items.
