During the COVID-19 quarantine, the Library can issue temporary library cards for electronic use only (eCards).
The purpose of the new eCard is to provide temporary access to electronic services for patrons who are eligible for a regular library card but prevented from registering for a library card due to the Library’s temporary closure.
REGISTER for an eCard
- Upon registration, you will be granted full access to the library’s digital resources including e-books and databases.
- Registrations are restricted to addresses within the Batavia Public Library’s service area zip codes.
