Beginning today, Monday, May 4, the Mankato location of the Blue Earth County Library System will begin providing contactless pick up for library materials.
Patrons can request materials in one of three ways:
Users will be notified by email or phone when items are available to schedule a pick-up time. A pick-up table will be available at the north entrance (bridge side).
Upon arrival to the Library, individuals will need to call 507-304-4019 and provide Library staff with their name. A staff member will place items on the pick-up table by the entrance. Users may approach the table only after staff have re-entered the building.
All users must have a Library card, but those without one may register over the phone. There is no cost to participate and items can be returned at patrons’ convenience fine-free until 30 days after the re-opening of the Mankato Library location.
Currently, the re-opening of the Library remains unknown. When a decision is made, it will be communicated on the Library’s website, social media channels, and traditional media.
Returned materials will not be accepted at the contactless pick up table; please use the book drops for returns.
For more information, contact the Blue Earth County Library at 507-304-4001.
