The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library first opened on January 1, 1913. To celebrate 100 years of service to the community, the EVPL Centennial Digital Collection uses photographs, annual reports, and other items of note to demonstrate the history of the library and all of the services it has offered over the last 100 years.
We hope that local historians, biographers, and genealogists will find these images interesting and useful. If you have additional information about any of these images, please contact us via Ask EVPL.
