This Week at Eckhart Public Library: June 2-7


The fountain is flowing, and you know what that means: Summer has come to Eckhart Public Library!

And since it’s summer, that means that it’s also the beginning of Summer Reading Clubs and the new Summer Research Club! Read more about our clubs:

The beginning of June also means it’s the beginning of the OverDrive Challenge. This challenge is attempting to boost downloads of e-books and e-audiobooks by 25 percent. The best news? Downloads count toward Summer Reading Club totals! Read more about OverDrive Challenge by clicking here.

About Jenny

I am the Associate Director of Eckhart Public Library. My office is in the Administrative Annex, but I can often be found roaming the Eckhart Public Library Campus, performing acts of librarianship in every department! I love to read and learn about history. I'm also a huge fan of movies, TV and pop culture in general, and I love to read books of all types. Currently, I'm working my way around the romance section, with some historical fiction and graphic novels thrown in for variety! But you never know what I'm going to pick up next.
