Review of Willard Library

Willard Library
Ranked #4 of 44 things to do in Evansville
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Lots of information available in many forms and friendly assistance if you need it. It even has a resident "ghost"- the "Gray Lady" that wanders around usually in the basement. Check out the week long "Midnight Madness" held each year and other genealogy seminars throughout the year- all is good! Also love the old building with wooden stairs and a newer addition that is blended together nicely.

This is a great place to take the kids for reading time. I appreciate Willard for the great resource it provided me, when searching my genealogy. The information is endless and the staff are very knowledgeable. The building is a piece of history as well. I recommend Willard Library to all ages!

We stopped in on a trip through the area. The architecture and woodworking are beautiful. There is a wonderful children's area with books, puzzles, and toys. The staff members were all welcoming and kind. It was a nice place to explore on a hot day.

The library is not part of the EVPL. It’s small and very old. The staff are relaxed, helpful, and friendly. The library hosts a variety of different events. I attended a Shakespeare play outside that was so fun. The library has a lot of neat history as well.
