This September, Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library is joining libraries nationwide for National Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time to remind parents, caregivers, and students that a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

A library card opens a world of infinite possibilities through resources and services that provide students the tools to succeed in school and beyond. From STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) programs and family storytimes, to research and digital resources, libraries transform lives through education.

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 collection.
