Hosting Library Card Design Contest for the Evansville Public Library


Calling all artists. Or doodlers. Or children. Or whoever wants to say, “I designed the new library card for the Evansville Public Library.” The EVPL is looking for you to do just that.

To celebrate “Library Card Enrollment Month”, the EVPL is offering residents the opportunity to have their artwork serve as a limited edition card in 2022. To participate, download the library card template on the EVPL website and let your imagination run wild. Savage. Once you’ve created what you think is an award-winning design, upload your piece and fill out your details through this online form.

Library staff will sort and review all submissions. They will select multiple models from each age group (kids 0-11, young adults 12-18, and adults 18+) and post them on their Facebook page later this year. Then it will be up to you to choose the winner by voting on the designs you like. The winning designs will be turned into real library cards that the library will give out to anyone who signs up next year.

We are fortunate to have a great library system here in Evansville with multiple locations across town. Each of them not only contains a large selection of books, but most, if not all, also contain a large collection of CDs and DVDs for you to browse. When my kids were younger, we often watched DVDs for them to watch. Personally, I’m a fan of picking up a few CDs every now and then. I like being able to preview albums, so to speak. It keeps me from spending money on an album that I might not like.

If you don’t have a library card, they’re free. All you need to do is go to your local EVPL office and register.
