 Our Vision: Communities united through shared exploration and understanding.

 Our Mission: We cultivate curiosity by creating wonder.


The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library provides many volunteer opportunities for community members, both at a library location and in community outreach.  Completing the Volunteer Application provides valuable information to our Volunteer Coordinator to assess your talents, skills, and interests in order to best provide a successful volunteer experience for both you and EVPL.

If you volunteer for EVPL, your responsibilities will include reporting to your volunteer assignment on time and dress in a neat and clean manner appropriate for the volunteer task. You will be helping the library uphold its mission to the community and are expected to provide friendly and informative service to all visitors and customers of the library.

Before you accept a volunteer assignment, you may be asked to participate in a volunteer screening process and to review and understand Library policies as outlined in the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library Volunteer Handbook.
