This Week at Eckhart Public Library – February 1-6, 2016


We’ve been making droids at Eckhart Public Library during Eckhart Winter Read, which runs through February 13.

Eckhart Winter Read continues. If you haven’t gotten signed up yet, there’s still time! During Eckhart Winter Read, children, teens, and adults can earn incentives and chances to win grand prizes for reading items checked out from the library. Anybody conducting research at the Willennar Genealogy Center: A Service of Eckhart Public Library will also earn incentives and chances to win grand prizes. More information and tally sheets are available at all public buildings on the library campus.

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.
