Sparking Innovation in Indy

The Library is a place where you can write your own story.

We help people fill their pages with enriching experiences. We inspire, empower and encourage our members to pursue new ideas and activities. Throughout the year, the library provides resources for creativity and personal growth. We hold events, have speakers and continuously improve our technology to stay on the leading edge of information and innovation.

  • We hosted FIRST LEGO® League team competition for 500 youth ages 0-18.
  • Local community innovators shared their expertise with patrons at our branches. Areas included Patents and Trademarks, Building a Non-Profit, Computer Code Writing for Teens.
  • Digital activities at our Central Library’s Learning Curve created opportunities for youth to increase their digital skills.
  • Our e-resources for kids were used 39% more in 2015 than in 2014.
  • We helped patrons create over 800 resumes and apply for 400 jobs through a career database.
