This Week at Eckhart Public Library – September 8-12


Summer is turning into a fall, and it’s a perfect time to spend time in Library Park! Enjoy reading, browsing the internet (there is wi-fi in the park!), or just enjoying the outdoors!

Don’t forget, September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month! Everybody who signs up for a library card in September will receive a sticker and an Eckhart Public Library bracelet. They also will earn a chance to win a Welcome to Eckhart Public Library prize pack. Stop in to the library to find out what library card you qualify for!

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.
