Individuals with current Library cards issued by the Batavia Public Library District and who are in good standing (no bills or fines totaling over $5.00) may borrow materials from the Library.
Through the network of SWAN libraries, you have access to a community offering more resources to share. This includes more audiobooks, books, CDs and music, DVDs and Bluray TV series and movies, educational resources, special collections, and expanded language selections. Batavia Public Library District is a SWAN member, meaning patrons have access to a shared catalog that includes over 10,000,000 items across 100 libraries. Even better, patrons can have those items shipped directly to Batavia Public Library in a matter of days or use a current Batavia Public Library card when visiting other SWAN libraries.
