"Our company's mission is pretty simple - we just recycle urban trees and try to make usable things from them. When krM Architecture and the Indianapolis Public Library came to us and asked us to help on this project I don't think we really realized the impact it was going to have on the community. Coming to the Library now and seeing all the people using the Library has really been rewarding and humbling."
~ Brian Presnell, Indy Urban Hardwood Co.
In 2018, wood harvested from trees on the grounds of the new Michigan Road Branch Library of IndyPL was sent to a local Indianapolis craftsman to be recycled for the library for both exterior and interior features. If you're interested in the type of impact recycling wood can have on the environment, enjoy "upcycling" and decorating, or just like working with wood, this list is for you. #indypladults IndyPL_AnikaW
