This week is Thanksgiving, and all of us at Eckhart Public Library are so thankful for our supportive patrons! Have a great holiday!
In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, the library campus will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and we’ll be closed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The library campus will reopen on Monday, December 1, with regular hours.
Never fear – cardholders can download books and audiobooks 24/7 through OverDrive. Click here to get started. You will need your library card and a PIN. If you don’t have a PIN, or can’t remember what it is, visit the Information Desk at the Main Library.
This week, through Wednesday, you can register for the A-Door Your Library decorating contest, sponsored by the Friends of the Eckhart Public Library. The Friends will use the revenues from the contest to help support support events, services, and collections at Eckhart Public Library. Read more about the contest here.
