We are excited to announce a new initiative – Seasons of Sharing! EVPL is committed to supporting our community at every stage in their lives, and we are looking forward to adding one more way to work with our community to create a positive impact in the lives of those in our region.

Each “season” throughout the year, a different community need will be highlighted. The library will partner with different local charities to provide opportunities for our community to give back through donation drives.

Summer 2022 Seasons of Sharing

Beginning Wednesday, June 1, and through Monday, July 18, Seasons of Sharing will be accepting donations to the Teacher Locker, which according to their website is a place where EVSC teachers grades Pre-K-12 can receive FREE school supplies for their classroom at no cost to the teacher. The goal is to reduce what teachers spend out of their own pockets for their classrooms.

The Teacher Locker has a Wish List, and items include: notebooks, pencils, paper, glue, scissors, markers, paint, art supplies, decorations, calculators, staplers, and binders.

Spring 2022 Seasons of Sharing

Through April 30, Seasons of Sharing will be accepting donations for Evansville’s Animal Care & Control, which “is dedicated to promoting citizen and pet safety, promotion of responsible pet ownership, and the reduction of animal overpopulation.”

Items needed for the drive include puppy pads, dog treats, cat and dog food, and other items specified on their Amazon Wish List.

Winter 2021 Seasons of Sharing

Through December 30, Seasons of Sharing will be accepting donations for Hangers, a clothing resource committed to serving EVSC students in need by providing them everyday living essentials that would otherwise be unaffordable.

Items needed for the drive include winter essentials like new or gently used gloves, scarves, and jackets. The items may also be handmade. Donations can be dropped off in designated bins at any EVPL location.
