It’s hard to believe that it’s November already! But November is a great time to visit Eckhart Public Library – we have a lot of fun things going on!

It’s the last week to vote in our annual Pie Poll! You can vote by clicking here. Anybody can vote, but please only vote once! We will release the results on Monday, November 9, and one lucky person will win a gift certificate to Dutch Heritage Baking and Catering to buy a pie (or something else, if they choose).

Monday also begins our weekly Come Write In sessions. This coincides with National Novel Writing Month. Read more about Come Write In at Eckhart Public Library by clicking here.

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.
