We’re looking for heroes this summer! The theme of Eckhart Summer Read, the library’s annual summer reading initiative for all ages, is heroes real and fictional – both ordinary heroes and superheroes.
During Eckhart Summer Read, children, teens, and adults can receive prizes for reading items checked out from Eckhart Public Library throughout the summer, while also earning chances to win grand prizes at the end of the summer. Books, magazines, audiobooks, e-books, graphic novels, and manga all count toward Eckhart Summer Read totals. Adults can also earn additional grand prize tickets for checking out items from displays, playing “Book Bingo,” and attending events for adults and for all ages.
Researchers at the Willennar Genealogy Center can also earn prizes and chances at prizes when researching genealogy, family history, or local history.
Grand prizes include prize packs, e-readers, gift cards for local businesses, and more.
