EMOS or Eckhart Mobile Outreach Service is a flexible program capable of responding to the needs and improving the lives of its patrons. EMOS is a free service provided by library staff and volunteers to people within Union Township or Auburn city limits.
Individuals in the library service area who are unable to access the library for any of the following reasons:
A significant physical impairment or disability (temporary or permanent)
Long-term illness or recovery from major surgery
Resident of a nursing home of assisted living facility
Individuals in the library service area who are day care providers or babysitters and cannot conveniently access the library to provide age-appropriate library materials for their clients. If a Child Care provider meets the criteria for Homebound Patrons and wants library materials for personal use, he or she must receive those materials separately from the Child Care Delivery.
Contact the EMOS Coordinator by phone or email:
260-925-2414 ext. 504
You will be asked to fill out a short survey about what kinds of materials you would like to receive from Eckhart Public Library. This form can be printed, filled out in its entirety, and given to the EMOS driver. It can also be mailed to:
Eckhart Public Library
603 S Jackson
Auburn, IN 46706
The EMOS Coordinator will then set up your delivery date, and a library staff member will begin selecting books for you. Within two weeks, you’ll receive your first EMOS delivery!
