About Us:

The Vigo County Public Library System has served the residents of Terre Haute and Vigo County Indiana since 1882 when local school trustees purchased the existing public library from the Terre Haute Library Association.

The public library was created for the benefit of the citizens of Vigo County and is supported by them. Its patrons include all ages and sectors of the community, both as individuals and organizations. The library is service oriented; it complements the objectives of other community agencies and institutions and freely shares its unique resources with all who need them. The purpose of the Vigo County Public Library is: to help meet the educational, cultural, informational, and recreational needs of the community by acquiring organizing, preserving, and providing access to materials and information in a variety of formats and to furnish equipment essential to their utilization; to help improve the quality of life by offering materials, services, and programs not readily accessible elsewhere in the community; to provide qualified staff to assist in the use of the full range of library resources; to take a leadership role among agencies and institutions in meeting the needs and promoting the well being of the community.

Our library is amazing. We are lucky. Seriously. I've seen libraries in other cities and they are sad. We have a large collection, our books are in excellent condition, and we have sections and fun programs for everyone. I really love this library!
