About Us

How We Got Started

The Third Place: A Teen Library was a philanthropic gift from a generous family in our community. With their help, Eckhart Public Library was able to turn this building into a space designated just for teenagers. With the aid of grants, charitable organizations, and fantastic volunteers we are able to add more exciting things to our building.


The Third Place is designed entirely for teens and is a safe place for young people to be. Because of this, we ask that anyone not of the age to attend grades 6-12 limit their stay to 15 minutes if accompanying their child or checking out materials. Exceptions can be made for academic purposes if cleared with the staff.

While we encourage patrons of all ages to come in and check out our materials, computers may never be used by patrons who are not of the age to attend grades 6-12.
