Central Library's Fifth Anniversary Celebration

Central Library

On Sunday, October 27, 2009, Central Library celebrated its 5th Anniversary at the new location on the corner of Walnut and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in downtown Evansville.

In addition to mini-golf and a cake decorating contest, those in attendance competed in a scavenger hunt, watched a musical book cart drill based on Lord of the Rings, and guessed the identity of volunteers dressed as popular literary figures.

Check out photos & videos from the event below!
