“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 have been having a great turnout at our Auburn Plaza Temporary location! We opened on Tuesday, October 10, and have had an outpouring of community support. We hope you’ll keep visiting and seeing what great things we have in store for this location! We also want to thank Window Nook, Lyn-Maree’s, The Italian Grille, Walmart #1570 of Auburn, and the Friends of Eckhart Public Library for their helpful offers and fundraisers over the past week! Wondering how you can help?  Visit eckhartstrong.org for more information.
