Evansville Library Nominated for Leslie B. Knope Award
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!!!
