Support the Library at the Giving Thanks Silent Auction!


There is a silent auction of gift baskets, sponsored by the Friends of the Eckhart Public Library, going on now through Saturday, November 22.

The annual Giving Thanks Silent Auction, sponsored by the Friends of the Eckhart Public Library, features gift baskets created by local businesses and organizations, individuals, and library departments. Baskets revolve around a variety of themes to entice a wide range of bidders.

Bidder numbers can be obtained at the library during the auction, which runs during the Main Library’s regular operating hours. Bidding closes at 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 22, and the highest bidders will be contacted by Monday, November 24. The winning bidders must pay for and pick up baskets by Wednesday, November 26, unless other arrangements are made.

In addition to making final bids, Saturday, November 22, bidders will be able to enter to win a chance to win a Mystery Basket, which has an approximate value of $100. To enter, adults 18 and older must obtain a bidder number and place a bid between 2 and 4:30 p.m. that day. Refreshments will be served in the Close Community Room during that time.

The Giving Thanks Silent Auction is an annual event by the Friends of the Eckhart Public Library. Revenues from the auction make up approximately 20 percent of the funds that the Friends use to support events, services, and collections at Eckhart Public Library.

The Friends of the Eckhart Public Library is a nonprofit group that supports Eckhart Public Library through fundraising, volunteer efforts, and outreach. Annual Friends memberships start at $10. For more information about the Friends, visit the Eckhart Public Library’s website at


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.
