Youth Services programming will take place in The Teen Library while The Main Library is closed for repairs. Preschool Storytimes and Wee Reads Storytimes will begin this week!

“Eckhart Public Library will remain strong and carry on, regardless of space or circumstance, to serve our community’s evolving needs as we move forward to enter a new chapter of service.”

Main Library Restoration Update

Our teams are making progress as they continue to evaluate the contents of The Main Library. Byler Lane Winery generously donated $2500 from their Christmas in July Event, and many supporting EPL by purchasing items from our Fire Recovery Wishlist. Pictured from left to right: Jan Hewitt, Jamie Long, Jenny Kobiela-Mondor, Rachel Byler, Eldon Byler, Cara Lane, and Larry Lane.
