Officials with the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library on Friday announced the expansion of in-person hours at its libraries and the return of several services.

According to EVPL, each library's in-person hours will be expanded beginning Monday, May 17.

In addition to the extension of its in-person library hours, EVPL says library uses will be able to once again reserve meeting and study rooms at all EVPL locations.

Reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance on rooms.evpl.org/reserve. EVPL says there will be a 30-minute buffer between room reservations to allow for cleaning by staff.

EVPL says that while virtual programming will continue to be provided, modified in-person programming will return following the launch of the Summer Reading Celebration on May 22. Check out a full schedule of events on the EVPL Calendar.

In addition to the resumption of all these services, something new: EVPL says it will be introducing its new EVPL Read Sensory Room and Preservation Studio.

The READ Sensory Room is a safe place for children with sensory processing differences or other challenging conditions in need of a calm, sensory-friendly space, according to EVPL. The Preservation Studio is a free “do-it-yourself” space for community members to archive and digitize personal mementos. Both will begin accepting appointments for reservation on Monday, May 17.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
