The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library is celebrating a big milestone, and the community is invited to help commemorate this important occasion.

The EVPL is 100-years-old this year, and we're kicking off a year-long Centennial celebration with a birthday party on Sunday, February 10th from 2:00-4:00 PM at Central Library.

Enjoy an afternoon of live music from After Hours, memories of the Library, and recognition of those who have helped the EVPL evolve over the past century.

The past will meet the present in activities for all ages. No birthday party is complete without cake.

The public is invited to enter the cupcake decorating contest to show off their literary-themed, edible masterpieces.

The deadline for entries is Monday, February 4th at 8:00 am. To see official contest rules and to register, visit or fill out an entry form at any EVPL location.
