Phase Two of our Reopening - Adding Express Pickup

Starting on July 20th one person at a time will be able to come into the lobby to pick up their requested library materials (holds) without an appointment. Library materials will already be checked out and placed in labeled bags for quick pickup. See the FAQ below for more details about what library services are available.

We are offering Express Pickup to provide you with the convenience of picking up holds without an appointment while eliminating the need for contact when checking out library materials and avoiding a wait in line while indoors. 

Please be considerate of others and maintain physical distancing while retrieving your library materials. If someone is in the lobby or doing a Curbside Pickup, please wait away from the library entrance until they have left the area.  Please note-  A face mask must be worn when in the building, per Dane County Order.

Express Pickup will be available on:

  • Monday – 1 pm-7 pm
  • Wednesday – 9am - noon and 1 pm-5 pm
  • Friday – 9am - noon and 1 pm-5 pm 

If patrons prefer to remain outside of the building, Curbside Pickup will still be available by appointment. Call 424-1812 to schedule a time.

The Dropbox is open for returns at any time.

The main portion of the Library will remain closed to the public.

Small town libraries are known as community gathering places, and we love to be that for Belleville. However, in the time of COVID-19, we all need to work together to provide library services in a way that protects community members and library staff.

We are making every effort to keep our community safe while providing library services.

Library staff are wearing masks and washing hands frequently while handling library materials to help keep you safe. Returned items are being quarantined for 96 hours (4 days).

Thank you for your cooperation and support as we navigate this difficult time.

If you have questions or need assistance requesting library materials, please call the Library at 424-1812. Staff will be happy to help you.
