Changes in Library Services Due to Increase in COVID cases

Effective November 30, 2020, due to the increase in local cases of COVID-19, the Black Earth Public Library will adjust our services until further notice.  


Access to the library will be allowed by appointment only to use library computers, Wi-Fi, printing, and photocopying/scanning. Appointments to browse the library collection will also be available. Each child 6 years old or younger must be accompanied by an adult over 18 years old. 

We will return to no contact walk-up pickup only for reserved books. When notified that a reserved book has come in, patrons will need to call the library and schedule a pick-up appointment. Books will be placed in the hallway across from the library entrance in a package marked with the patron’s initials at the scheduled time.  

Appointments will be available most of our regular hours (BUT HOURS MAY VARY):  

Monday - Thursday:  10 AM to 7 PM  

Friday:  10-5  

Saturday: 10-2  

Patrons will need to call ahead to schedule all pick-up and in-library appointments.    

The Black Earth Public Library phone number is 608-767-4905.   

Please leave a message if no one is available to take your call, and we will return your call as soon as we are able.
