The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library is joining libraries across the country in celebrating National
Library Week during April 4 – 10, 2021.
“EVPL has been serving our community for more than 100 years,” said EVPL CEO-Director Scott Kinney. “Especially in pandemic times, the library has been a place for resources, support, and opportunities. Whether visiting us in person or virtually, EVPL offers our library users the chance to explore new worlds and become their best selves through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs.”
In 2020, EVPL offered more than 300 digital programs that were viewed over 407,000 times. Nearly 1.6 million physical items were checked out from the library and over 850,000 digital materials were borrowed. Our summer reading participants read for the equivalent of more than 350 days. Fall 2020 Early Voting hosted at EVPL locations welcomed 23,455 voters.
There are several ways to celebrate National Library Month. The best way is to visit your local library, either physically or digitally, to access our collection, technologies, and knowledgeable staff. Also, our community is invited to share why they love EVPL by using #WeLoveOurLibrary and #MyEVPL on social media.
The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library has served our community for more than a century. With eight locations throughout Vanderburgh County, immediate access to hundreds of thousands of digital resources, and a dedicated team of library professionals, EVPL strives to create opportunities for you to discover, explore, and connect with your library.
