Library Card Expirations: Has your Library card expired? It's ok—we make renewals easy! Stop by the Main Library or West Branch Library with your state-issued ID and we'll renew your card. If you aren't comfortable visiting the Library yet, park in one of the available designated parking spaces for Curbside Pickup and one of our staff members will safely renew your card from your vehicle.
Masks Required: Due to Governor Holcomb's state mandate, Vigo County Public Library requires all customers to wear masks inside our buildings.
Vigo County Timeline of History
Chat with a Librarian
Coverage of historical information from Vigo County Indiana begins with 1800 and continues to the present. Presently, coverage is most complete for businesses, churches, and organizations; however, the contents will be continually expanded and updated as additional information becomes available. Subject indexes are arranged alphabetically.
The compilation of this information is coordinated by Dorothy Weinz Jerse, a local historian. This project would not have been possible without the help and cooperation of the many businesses, organizations, churches, educational institutions, and dedicated individuals of Vigo County.
