Reading lovers celebrate Evansville Library's 100th birthday

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of people gathered to wish the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library a Happy Birthday Sunday afternoon.

A jazz band, cupcake contest and of course a children's story time highlighted the 100th birthday celebration. 

One brother and sister stopped by the celebration to look for some new books together. They say they come to the library for unusual reads. 

"I like mystery, horror and slapstick comedy. The thing I was most excited for was the cupcake judging because I didn't really know what was going on or what was going to happen today," Ariel Erwin said.

That cupcake contest featured representations of classic children's books like Charlotte's Web, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Dr. Seuss favorites.
