Black Rock Public Library

Burning Man 2024

Library at Night

Do you love sharing the joy of books and learning with others?

We are a camp of around 25-30 that have been bringing a library to Black Rock City since 2013. Our librarians distribute thousands of books each year with a strict one year ‘check-out’ policy and we host entertaining and educational interactive events.
