This Week at EPL – July 24-29

amazon_logo_RGB.jpgEckhart Public Library has another way for the public to help after a damaging arson fire closed the Main Library building on July 2.

The library has set up a wishlist on Amazon for needed items, including craft supplies, toys, games, DVDs, and more. The wishlist can be found by clicking here. There is also a link on the library’s website.

There is also a fund set up at the Community Foundation of DeKalb County to help defray costs associated with the library’s renovation and restoration that will not be covered by insurance. Visit cfdekalb.org for more information.

Visiting the library, checking out items, and participating in programming are other ways to help support the library during this time. Adult fiction, nonfiction, audiobooks, graphic novels, DVDs, museum and park passes, Wi-Fi hotspots and CDs can be checked out from the Willennar Genealogy Center, 700 S.
