Due to many traffic problems that will most likely occur due to the President's visit, the Central branch of EVPL will be closed Thursday.

Thursday is a big day for Downtown Evansville. Riverside is closed for Hydrofest, and the President is visiting. Which is going to cause some major traffic for various reasons. Some people will be visiting to see the President, and some people will be visiting to protest. It's gonna get crowded.

So, for safety reasons, Central Library has decided to not open on Thursday, Aug 30th. They don't want employees or patrons to risk driving through people an traffic that day.

They will reopen on Friday, Aug 31st.

*Note: All other EVPL branches will be open. Only Central will be closed.
