AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - The Eckhart Public Library is finally beginning to re-build after an arson destroyed the history building in Auburn nearly a year ago.
This week, crews began to tear out the handicap ramp leading up the main entrance.
That's because the library is re-configuring the main entrance as part of the rebuilding.
On July 2, 2017 Nykolas Elkin put a lit firework down the book return, destroying much of the first floor.
The library will mark the anniversary of the devastating event with a special announcement about it's future on July 2.
