Discover how to use the app: Get an overview of the app and features or explore more how-to instructions on the SWAN website.

Please note: A new app was released in December 2023. If you are using the old version of the app, please delete and reinstall the new app. The old app will not include your most recent account information and other features.

Meescan app: For self-checkout in the library

Check out library items from anywhere inside the library with the Meescan app. To find it, search “Meescan” in your app store. Available for Android and iOS.

Things to note

  • Install the app from anywhere, but activate only in the library (once you visit the library and use the app, it will not ask for a code).
  • If you open the app anywhere outside of the library, it will say “Checkout is only available while in the library and with location services enabled.”
  • You must set the Meescan app to allow for location use.
  • Be sure to scan the library barcode, not the publisher barcode.
