EVPL locations to shift to curbside services only

Due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in our community and tristate region, the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library will shift to curbside only services beginning Monday, November 23.

The decision to shift services was made with the health and safety of library staff and our community in mind and out of an abundance of caution by EVPL Administration and with the EVPL Board of Trustees.

EVPL will continue to navigate these circumstances with everyone’s well-being in mind, making decisions informed by the latest science-based information and our Library Policies.

EVPL To Go, our contactless curbside pickup service, is available at all locations, except EVPL East due to ongoing construction, operating from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Saturday. In addition to picking up holds, library users may also utilize the library’s copy, fax, and scanning services through EVPL To Go.

“We have a responsibility to our community to put their health and safety first,” said EVPL CEO-Director Scott Kinney. “At this time, we are following the recommendations of health officials to minimize crowds, reduce sharing of materials, and offer a curbside option.”
In addition to EVPL To Go, there are several other services offered by the library:

• EVPL Recommends: A personalized recommendation service to virtually browse the library.
• Book-A-Librarian: Get personalized reference or technical assistance.
• AskEVPL: Chat with an EVPL team member to get quick help.
• EVPL’s Business Central: Create a resume, practice interview skills, and connect with resources for small business owners.
• EVPL’s Education Central: Find trusted resources for students, teachers, and educators.

Library users may also continue to utilize EVPL’s digital collection, which includes thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks, movies, TV shows, music, and more, available 24/7.

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.
