Santa has been watching to see who has been naughty or nice. He is anxiously awaiting Christmas wish lists from children! Youngsters may mail their holiday letters to Santa from the “North Pole Mailbox” located by the elevator in the Children’s Department. Santa promises to write back to each child if their name and address are included with their letter.
Due to Santa’s busy schedule, all letters must be received by Tuesday, December 17. This will give him plenty of time to respond and pack his sleigh for Christmas Eve deliveries.
It’s that wonderful time once again, folks! Eckhart Public Library has new movies for December! Click on the image or the title of the movie to be taken to the catalog page for that movie and see if it’s in or even put it on hold. Don’t forget, if you need a 4-digit PIN you can come to the Circulation Desk and add one or change one. We cannot do this over the phone.

Our patrons have been asking for it, and thanks to a generous volunteer, it’s back!
EPL’s book drop was damaged in a hit-and-run in late September when the library was closed for the fair.
Volunteer Rick Dye, husband of EPL board president Carolyn Foley, repaired the original book drop and reinstalled it Friday.
The book drop has a brighter shade of green paint and donated signage that incorporates the library’s window logo.
Many thanks to Rick for his efforts!

For those of you who don’t already know, PostSecret (http://www.postsecretcommunity.com/) is a gathering of secrets posted anonymously. Within the pages of these books people share things they might be afraid or proud of. Some of these secrets are about wanting to die, some are about family, some are indescribable.
I love these books. I’ve read through them multiple times and I’ve been to the website to read secrets. Click here to read how PostSecret got started. Why do I love these books? They’re real secrets from real people and these secrets can change your life. I spent a few semesters studying Psychology before I ever started working for the Eckhart Public Library and seeing these secrets brings back memories of reading stories in those books because sometimes the secrets mention therapy. The other main reason I love reading these books is because sometimes a person writes in a card and adds that after they’ve written it they feel free because their secret is no longer just with them. Even if they’re the only one who knows that he/she wrote the secret he/she is not the only one who knows the secret now. These books might be over at our Teen building, but they are certainly not just for teens. Sometimes it’s adults writing secrets too.
Heather: Everyone has a secret. Big. Small. Silly. Serious. Whatever. Sometimes sharing our secrets, even in something as simple and common as a journal, can help us. By reading some of the secrets through PostSecret I’ve felt more comfortable with some of my own secrets and it’s helped me in being able to share some of my secrets, things I’ve had weighing on my shoulders for years and years, with some of those closest to me.
