Evanston Public Library

The Evanston Public Library (EPL), located in Evanston, Illinois, has three locations: the Main Library at 1703 Orrington Ave, the North Branch at 2026 Central Street, and the Chicago Avenue-Main Street Branch at 900 Chicago Ave.  Borrower cards are free to Evanston residents, Evanston property tax payers, and Evanston businesses. Evanston Library borrowers also have easy access, via the library catalog, to most circulating items in the collections of 22 other public libraries through EPL's membership in the Cooperative Computer Services (CCS) consortium.  EPL is a member of the Reach Across Illinois Library System (RAILS).

Science in Society's annual Scientific Images Contest has exhibited at the library for the past four years.
