For babies 0 months through students entering 8th grade Winter Library Club has gone online! But it is still the program you know and love.
The Youth Services Winter Library Club combines reading and participation in Library activities. Families who participate in Winter Library Club must be Batavia Public Library cardholders or have children attending a Batavia school.
Each badge earned on the Beanstack platform counts as one activity towards completing the child’s Winter Library Club challenge. Complete ten badges to earn a Winter Library Club – Antarctic Adventure reward. Every badge also earns children a ticket that can be used to enter a drawing for prize baskets. For each additional badge achieved, children will also earn an extra ticket to enter the prize basket drawing.
For assistance and questions, contact the Youth Services Department at 630-879-1393 x500 or email youthservices@bataviapubliclibrary.org.
