To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 here is what you can expect when you return to use the Library:
We ask that you keep your visits as brief as possible in order to minimize risk for everyone inside our libraries.
When your holds are ready for pick-up, you will receive an automated hold notice from SWAN by either email, text, or phone (whichever method you have chosen for your account).
When you arrive at the Library, you can request your holds – no appointment needed:
• Park your car (if driving)
• Call the Circulation department at (630) 879-1393 Option 1
• Provide your Library card number
Circulation will put the bagged items on the curbside pickup table (located outside front doors under the portico) for you to collect.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 when you use the Curbside Pickup Service face masks are encouraged for all patrons.
To ensure the health of both our patrons and staff
• patrons are required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth
• maintain a safe social distance of six feet from others
• limit visits to the scheduled appointment time
We’ll also continue monitoring and limiting the number of patrons admitted to the library.
During the curbside pickup phase, Batavia Public Library will print up to 20 black-and-white pages (or 3 color pages) per patron per week, free of charge.
Curbside printing instructions.
Face masks are encouraged for all curbside pickup patrons.
Internet computers in the Adult Services department will be available on a limited basis by appointment. Call 630-879-1393 ext. 2 to make your appointment.
