What is Eckhart Public Library Doing?
Additional Library Services
In addition to in-person services, the library is offering home delivery and curbside pickup of library materials. To get your items curbside, simply follow the procedures on our Curbside page, and we’ll take it from there. Not sure of what items you’d like? Try our personalized staff suggestions!
Patrons and library staff are welcome to and are encouraged to wear a mask if they feel more comfortable doing so.
Cleaning & Sanitization
The library’s physical spaces are sanitized and cleaned regularly.
All returned items are sanitized before they are put back on the library shelves.
All available computers are sanitized after each use.
To reduce contact, self check-out machines are available on every floor of the library.
Eckhart Public Library’s programming includes several outdoor options, weather permitting.
If you are not feeling well or have tested positive for COVID-19, we are more than happy to assist you over the phone. Please do not bring items back to the library if you, or those in your home, are positive with COVID-19. Contact us, and we’ll take it from there.
If you are feeling sick, we ask that you please stay home to limit the spread of germs.
At Eckhart Public Library we are dedicated to providing information about COVID-19 from reliable sources and making that information available to the public. More information about COVID-19 can be found below.
Please Wash Your Hands
We ask that users wash their hands before and after handling library materials.
Hand sanitizer is available throughout the library in pumps and automated dispensers.
