September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library joins libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning.

“Now more than ever, libraries play a vital role in the well-being of communities,” EVPL CEO-Director Scott Kinney said. “With a variety of services, resources, and materials, EVPL is ready to help our community take the next step in their journey.”

There is nothing more empowering than signing up for your own library card. Through access to technology, media resources, and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams and passions.

Libraries offer everything from early literacy programs to virtual homework help and GED classes, helping transform lives and communities through education. At EVPL, you will find a wide variety of educational resources and activities, including STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) programs, family storytimes, and digital collections for all ages.

Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. Studies show that children who are read to at home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

The library also has several resources and programs for lifelong learners. Learn a new skill through our Gale Courses. Discuss literature in one of our Book Discussions. And brush up on a hobby by exploring our vast digital and physical collection.

EVPL, along with libraries everywhere, continue to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community.
