What is Eckhart Public Library Doing?
Modified Library Services
Right now the library is offering curbside services. To get your items curbside, simply place the items you'd like on hold, and we will contact you to arrange your pick-up time. Not sure of what items you'd like? Try our personalized staff suggestions!
At Eckhart Public Library we are dedicated to providing information about COVID-19 from reliable sources and making that information available to the public.
Eckhart Public Library's in person programming has been suspended at this time to prevent the additional spreading of germs. In person programming will return as soon as we are able to do so. Please see our social media for virtual programming and opportunities for library engagement online.
Extended Checkouts & Items
No items will be due back until July 1st. If you would like to return you items, they can be taken to our Administrative Annex (212 W. 12th Street) from 9 am to 6 pm on Monday - Friday.
All returned items are quarantined for three days and sanitized before returning to the shelves.
We are also increasing the number of items that can be streamed on Hoopla from 5 to 10 per month.
The Friends of Eckhart Public Library will not be accepting donations of books and other items at this time.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, we are more than happy to help your navigate our digital services over the phone.
If you are not feeling well, we ask that you please stay home to limit the spread of germs.
