One of my fave places in Indy is The Indianapolis Public Library. Yeah, I know the library is nothing new, but have you visited lately? The Indianapolis Public Library rocks. I go to the library on a regular basis and it’s such a relaxing place to read a book, work on a project or ask for some research help from one of the librarians (who are always helpful).
Here are 5 things I love about The Indianapolis Public Library.
It’s free if you’re a Marion County resident. Who doesn’t love free?
Lots to check out—including new books & you can check out e-books and stream movies!
You can find so many new books at the library. Simply look the books up on the library’s site and request them to be shipped to your library branch. You’ll receive an email notification when your book is available for pick up/check out. Easy! You may have to wait a few weeks or a bit longer for a brand new book (like a NY Times Best Seller), but that’s not bad at all and it’s free!
Open 7 Days a Week
You can find a branch that is open 7 days a week. (Not all of them are—but most are open daily, except for holidays).
Events and Classes
There is a regular schedule of free classes and events for kids and adults.
There’s a ton of research information on The Indianapolis Public Library’s site, including newspapers and magazines, and health and business resources, and even an online language lab to brush up on your language skills. Need more in-depth research? Stop by your local branch and ask one of the librarians.
