In June of 1897, the Indiana Union of Literacy Clubs appointed her the chairman of a committee of five persons intended to cooperate with the Library Association of Indiana (today the Indiana Library Federation) to frame a law which would secure a library commission, later the Indiana Public Library Commission. Earl became one of the first appointees to the commission and served on it for many years, serving as its president from 1916 to 1925, and as the president of the Indiana Library and History Department during 1925-1926. She also sat on the Indiana State Library and Historical Board and the Indiana State Library Building Commission until her death. Earl died on December 8, 1931 and was buried in Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana.
