Introducing Express Fiction!

We heard your concerns and have reevaluated the New Fiction check out time of seven days for all new adult fiction*. As we are experiencing a shrinking print budget, Eckhart Public Library will now be offering two check out options to make the most of our available titles for all library users.

Express Fiction
For patrons who want a faster turn over on the newest hot titles, Express Fiction is now available! Each Express Fiction book will check out for seven days and, if no one is on hold for the item, have one renewal. After that, there will be a charge of fifty cents a day for late Express items.

Standard Fiction
We will still have the standard 14 day check out available, with a late charge of ten cents a day, for non Express items for those who would like their items a little longer.

*Only new, adult fiction will have these check-out options.
