EVPL Celebrating Women’s History Month with a Series of Programming, displays

The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library will observe Women’s History Month with a series of programs and displays that highlight the achievements and contributions of women in history and the vital role women play in today’s society.

“During Women’s History Month, we have the opportunity to recognize the impact of women,” said EVPL CEO-Director Scott Kinney. “Through our programs, activities, and displays, we hope to spark conversations about the role of women in history and their influence on our lives today.”

Details about programming can be found on the library’s website.

Book Bundles themed around Women’s History Month will be available to reserve and pick up at any EVPL location during March. These bundles, which are curated packs of movies, books, and/or CDs, will have materials by women and about the influence women have had in history.

Additionally, displays at EVPL locations will highlight local women like Ethel McCollough, EVPL’s first Chief Librarian, and Lillian Childress Hall, Indiana’s first Black librarian and Chief Librarian of EVPL’s Cherry St. library branch.

The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library has served our community for more than a century. With eight locations throughout Vanderburgh County, immediate access to hundreds of thousands of digital resources, and a dedicated team of library professionals, EVPL strives to create opportunities for you to discover, explore, and connect with your library.
