The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library is now part of the Indiana Library Passport program! This program encourages Hoosiers to visit library buildings across the state and “check-in” for a chance to win prizes. Please note, you can only “check-in” at EVPL Central.

From the program: “With 236 library districts – and more than 400 individual library buildings – Indiana provides all Hoosiers with a path to knowledge. From outdoor library gardens to gem collections to the Rolland Center for Lincoln Research, Indiana libraries showcase many unique learning opportunities. This passport features more than 90 main libraries and branches to explore, including 31 historical Carnegie libraries. With over 100 Carnegie libraries, Indiana has more than any other state. When participants check in to these libraries, they will be entered into a quarterly drawing for a prize package, including, but not limited to, historical tour tickets, architecture books, and gift cards from local and national merchants. This program is 100% free, however, a gate fee will apply in order to visit the library at the Museum of 20th Century Warfare in Fort Harrison State Park in Marion County. All prizes are while supplies last.”

Here’s how to get started

  • Step 1: Get the pass: This mobile exclusive passport (https://passport.library.in.gov/) is a collection of local Indiana libraries offering check-in opportunities to be entered to win prizes!
  • Step 2: Receive a text: The passport will be instantly delivered to your phone via text and email and is ready to use immediately! There is no app to download. Your pass can be saved to your phone’s home screen for easy one-tap access.
  • Step 3: Redeem: When visiting a participating library, simply ensure that your location services are turned on on your mobile device and press the “check-in” button! Users must be within 0.25 miles for validation.

Check-in for a chance to win prizes

From the program: “When participants check-in to libraries on the Indiana Library Passport trail, they will be entered into a quarterly drawing for a prize package, including, but not limited to, historical tour tickets, architecture books, and gift cards from local and national merchants.

The passport will expire on June 29, 2023.
