Making connections

The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library Foundation is 501(c)3 established to support the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library. We inspire and connect the community in a desire for shared exploration, understanding, and engagement in the wonder of knowledge. 

The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library Foundation fosters connections in 3 key ways.

  • Connecting the community to the library through events, activities, and special offerings
  • Guiding community members in ways to volunteer to make a difference through the library
  • Providing opportunities for the community to give financially to the library and to support its impact.

Whether it’s through book sales events, opportunities to learn about authors, or to give to special projects of the library, the Foundation is committed to helping individuals, organizations, and businesses connect through the library, and grow in its desire for shared exploration, understanding, and knowledge.

You too can be part of the movement of knowledge and wonder in Evansville. To learn how you can engage in this exciting journey, contact the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library Foundation by emailing foundation@evpl.org.
