Save the Maps : Batavia’s Historic Map Quest


The maps, owned by the Batavia Public Library, are the only known set of an east and west side wall map circa 1907 of Batavia, Illinois and are in need of extensive restoration. These maps, 10 feet by 6 feet each, represent the contrast of life more than 100 years ago and today’s highly technological way of life. The historical and educational value is a significant reason to restore the maps for use by all persons: historians, students, citizens from Batavia and any Library patrons.

We invite you to partner with us to restore these historical gems. Donate online here by selecting “Save the Maps” from the box on the upper right of this page.

With immense gratitude,
Batavia Public Library Foundation

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!
