We’re back! Eckhart Public Library staff and volunteers got a lot of work done while we were closed (and most of us ate a lot of fried food at the DeKalb County Free Fall Fair, too!), but we’re ready to see our patrons’ smiling faces again!
The biggest change you’ll notice is the new arrangement for books in Adult Fiction. Books will be “interfiled,” which means that all genres will be shelved together, arranged alphabetically by author’s last name. Christian fiction, fantasy, mystery, science fiction, and western books will still have genre stickers. Read more by clicking here. Watch a video about how the characters in the library’s books reacted to the change by clicking here. And, of course, come on in and take a look around! Our staff will be happy to help you find whatever you’re looking for!
