We hope you are able to come to the Eckhart Public Library campus this week! There are lots of fun, educational, and interesting things happening! The photo on this post shows one of the fun things that has happened recently at the library – the Neon Readers Teen Book Club finished filming their movie, “Frankin Princess Ninjas.” We can’t wait to see it!

This week continues the Giving Thanks Silent Auction, at the main library. This annual auction, sponsored by the Friends of the Eckhart Public Library, features gift baskets created by local businesses and organizations, individuals, and library departments. The sale is open to the public, and there are some great baskets this year! Stop by and check them out! Read more about the Giving Thanks Silent Auction by clicking here.

We’re also getting ready for the holidays at Eckhart Public Library, and that means getting ready for the Downtown Auburn Business Association Christmas Parade on Tuesday, November 24! We’ll be marching as Jedis to get ready for Eckhart Winter Read, which has an outer-space theme. Sign up in the Children’s Department. Or, if you attend the parade, be sure to cheer for the library!

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.
