Haughville Library Receives Spirit of Philanthropy Award
April 5, 2013
The Haughville Branch of The Indianapolis Public Library, located at 2121 W. Michigan Street, has received the Spirit of Philanthropy Award from IUPUI for its sustained commitment to improve the lives of IUPUI students and residents of the near westside.
Since opening as a new branch in 2003, the Haughville Branch has served as an experiential learning site for many IUPUI students engaged in service learning and volunteering, including such activities as tutoring, community computer training, and presenting English language classes. Branch Manager Nancy Mobley was cited as a leader in near westside development and in partnering with IUPUI's Center for Service and Learning as a supervisor for Sam H. Jones Community Service scholars and as a connector of opportunities for IUPUI students in the area.
Each year since 1989, IUPUI's Spirit of Philanthropy Awards have honored the individuals, corporations and foundations that contribute to school's programs through gifts and voluntary services.
