Eckhart Public Library Landmark Building Reopening Announced
Friday, February 21, 2020

A historic Auburn landmark is set to reopen in a few weeks as the Eckhart Public Library will reopen its historic landmark building with an open house from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday, March 15th.

Those interested in attending the historic event should note that parking for the event will be available at McKenney-Harrison Elementary School and the Auburn Presbyterian Church. The event will be sponsored by the Eckhart Library Foundation.

The library that is located at 603 South Jackson St., was built in 1910 and expanded in 1996. The building has been restored and renovated following an arson fire that devastated its interior and destroyed the building’s collection of books and materials. All Eckhart Public Library campus facilities will be closed to the public during the week of March 9 in preparation for the opening.

In addition to the upcoming open house, a grand celebration is being planned for the weekend of June 6th and 7th, with an exact date and time to be announced.
