The Friends of the Batavia Public Library is an entirely volunteer group. The anual book sales are one of their largest volunteer efforts. Additional volunteer opportunities with the Friends are also available. To help with the book sale or for more information, call (630) 879-8220.
Keepers of the Shelves is a special program for adult volunteers who keep the library in great condition. Keepers of the Shelves gives individuals a responsibility for a specific section of the library to keep it neat and in call number order. This program works with any schedule because it allows the volunteer to visit his / her chosen area at least once a month when he/she is available. Keepers of the Shelves is a great way to get involved by taking pride in your Batavia Public Library and keeping it orderly.
If you are interested in volunteering at Batavia Public Library – once a week, once a month, or somewhere in between – please stop by the Check Out Desk and pick up a volunteer application or Adult Volunteer Application, fill it out, and return it to the Library.
