EVPL Oaklyn
3001 Oaklyn Dr
Evansville, IN 47711

Originally located in an old school building just up the road, EVPL Oaklyn opened the doors of its newest location in 2003. Nestled in the side of a hill and situated near the corner of Oak Hill and Lynch, EVPL Oaklyn's cheery interior and windowed lobby make it easy to forget the majority of the building exists underground.  Beneath a green roof of prairie grass and local wildflowers, EVPL Oaklyn boasts a multitude of calming spaces–a cafe space, private study rooms, a large meeting room, and a children's area with seating for the whole family. The location offers WiFi, public computer access, and more.
