Riverside Library and Cultural Center

Riverside Library, located in Old Town Evans, opened in Fall 2014 and is a destination library for neighborhoods surrounding the library and the Evans community.

The 18,500 square foot library is part of a joint use cultural center which is operated and maintained by the City of Evans.

Through its building design the library replicates the train depot that used to sit on the site and offers a variety of spaces that meet the diverse needs of the community including areas for collaboration, meetings, and quiet study.

The library provides over 36,000 items, including movies, music, magazines, a Spanish-language materials collection, and plenty of books. The library offers 21 public access computers, free Wi-Fi, four study rooms, a cozy fireplace, areas for children and teens, a multi-purpose room for library programs, and an outdoor play space and plaza.

The Riverside Library hosts a wide variety of classes, one-on-one computer help sessions, book clubs for adults, story times for young customers, and programs/activities for the entire family. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff is always ready to assist with your information needs in the library. Library staff are also available for visits to schools, community organizations and clubs.

The City of Evans also provides large banquet halls and a local history display. To make a banquet hall reservation, call the Evans Community Center at 970-475-1125.
