AUBURN — In the midst of construction at the Eckhart Public Library’s historic main building, staff members have been working behind the scenes to bring patrons a new and improved website. The new homepage for the library, which launched Friday, features a more minimalistic design and cleaned-up menu. The goal of the redesign was to do away with features that were slowing down the former home page, as well as create a page where information could be found more quickly and efficiently. The library’s page can still be found at

The library is highlighting one of its newest items, “The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky” by Mackenzi Lee. A novella and direct sequel to “The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue” finds Monty is back from his grand adventure, and he and Percy are at last together. That being said, he still has another issue to tackle — figuring out how to really be a couple. Find this title at the Teen Library.
