AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - The Eckhart Public Library is expected to reopen in February 2019.

The historic main branch is undergoing renovations after an arson in July 2017.

Library leaders are taking this time to make signifcant changes during the remodeling process.

One of the biggest changes is getting rid of the long ramp, allowing everyone to enter at the ground level.

Nykolas Elkin is serving a 14 year sentence after he told a judge he dropped a lit firework in the book return.

Library staff meanwhile continue to work out of a temporary location in the Auburn Plaza.
