EVPL invites students from across the community to submit a piece of art that represents what Black History Month means to them. 

The art will be on display during the month of February at EVPL East with a special program on Friday, February 17 from 5-6pm.  During this program, students will be able to present their art piece to the community.  Guests can also enjoy music, snacks, and beverages while viewing the art pieces.  EVPL Manager, Linda Baker, hopes to engage the young people from across the city and involve them in the celebration of Black History Month.  “I know of no better way to celebrate Black History Month than engaging our youth and the community with art and music.  There are so many young people who come to EVPL East and other locations that are artistically talented, and we want to give them the space to show off their talent.   We wanted to go beyond a passive experience and truly involve our community in a true celebration of Black History.”


Participants must drop-off their art with an official registration form attached at EVPL East by Friday, February 3 at 6:00pm. EVPL East is located at 840 E. Chandler Ave. Hours for this location:

About the branch

Located at 840 E. Chandler Ave., EVPL East was one of three original libraries built in Evansville with funds donated by Andrew Carnegie. Along with EVPL West, it was dedicated and opened to the public on January 1, 1913. Renovated in 2003, the building is surrounded by a park-like setting and features a spacious meeting room, public access computers, and comfortable adult and youth areas.
