If you’re curious about the John Martin Smith Collection, you should swing by the Willennar Genealogy Center for a sneak peek! We’ve updated our display case with a variety of items from the collection. If looking’s not enough to satisfy your curiosity, you can also read a little bit about each piece and the story behind it. Learn about horse thief detectives, Auburn’s very first movie theatre, and more.

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.
