Fireside family fun at the Batavia Public Library

Dec 22, 2016 11:39AM ● By Neighbors Magazines

The Library is a delightful winter destination, especially for those participating in Winter Library Club for Families. This year, families are invited to participate in “Fireside Family Fun,” which begins Sat., Jan. 14, and runs through Tues., Feb. 28.

Winter Library Club is more than a reading club. Families (at least one adult and one child) can register and receive a “Fireside Family Fun” activity log at the Youth Services Desk beginning Jan. 14. After completing each level (four in all) on the log, families return to the Youth Services Desk to collect small rewards. Activities on the log include attending a Library program such as the “Science & Art Fair” on Jan. 28 or a storytime; designing a quilt square; and going on an Observation Station scavenger hunt. Families participating in Winter Library Club must be Batavia Public Library cardholders or have children attending a Batavia school.

Adults and high school students are invited to participate in Winter Reading Club by reading or listening to three books and returning a reading log to the Reference Desk. Adults and students will earn a book when they return a reading log and will be entered into a drawing for prizes at the conclusion of Winter Reading Club. Reading logs will be available at the Reference Desk beginning Jan. 14.
