Making Knowledge More Accessible

The Library is always bringing more characters into the story.

Outreach and inclusion are at the core of the library’s mission. By making resources more accessible to a broader community, we create more opportunity and greater possibilities for everyone. The Library is an active catalyst for positive change in Indianapolis. And we’re working to get everyone involved.

  • We began a campaign to renovate and build new Libraries around the city, including in Pike, Perry and Lawrence Townships.
  • Through the Shared System program, where thirty private, public and charter schools share school and public library catalogs, students requested over 27,000 materials from our catalog.
  • Six of ten Shared System elementary schools scored above the state average on the reading portion of the state achievement test after joining the System.
