Public Service Specialist Kelsey Shanabarger reads to one of the Wee Reads Storytime groups. Both Wee Reads and Preschool Storytimes picked up this week after summer break.

“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

We want to send a huge thank you to Ella Nixon, DeKalb Health, and Paper Gourmet for making wonderful donations towards the restoration of the main library! We also want to thank Auburn Family Video for taking a variety of donations on our behalf. We are continuing to evaluate the materials that were in the library during the fire.pjimage.jpg
