EVPL ranks among top libraries in nation


The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library has been named a Four Star library by Library Journal, placing it in the top 2.2% of public libraries nationwide. The EVPL has been nationally ranked in every edition of the Library Journal star rating index.

Each year Library Journal rates libraries across the country and assigns them star rankings. The EVPL’s four star rating makes it the largest library system with the highest ranking in the state of Indiana this year.

The Library Journal index measures four per capita areas that indicate public service, including circulation, visits, program attendance, and public Internet use.


  1. EVPL is a wonderful system, and we are fortunate to have it as a local resource. Congrats on the well-deserved recognition!

  2. We should have bipartisan agreement on not only maintaining, but increasing their funding.

    Consider becoming a Public Library Friend if you aren’t already.
