What an incredible honor to be nominated! The Evansville Public Library has been nominated for the Leslie B. Knope Award. And before you ask - Yes! That Leslie B. Knope from Parks & Recreation. She was Amy Poehler's character in the fictitious town of Pawnee, Indiana on NBC's hit sitcom Parks & Recreation.

People have speculated for years about Pawnee being a spoof of Evansville. I don't know if there is any actual truth to that but if you've ever watched Parks & Rec, you cannot deny the similarities between Pawnee and the 'Ville. Consisting of a weekly, bracket style voting system, you can cast your vote for Evansville through the first round ending January 26th. What are you waiting for? Cast your vote now!!!
