Welcome to the Newly Renovated Lawrence Branch



The Lawrence Branch opened in 1967 on North Franklin Road in a storefront previously occupied by the Lawrence Post Office. It was the first branch to open within an incorporated town in Marion County. Rapid population growth demonstrated the need for a larger, permanent facility to serve the northeast side. A 3.44 acre site was purchased from MSD Lawrence Township for a new 13,500-square-foot library that opened in 1983.

Renovated in 2020, the Lawrence Branch re-opened to changes that maximized access to the Library’s services and collections, created engaging and functional spaces for those of all ages, and increased access to new technology. The project also provided group study and tutoring areas, improved lighting, more outlets for charging stations, and updates to the entrance, public restrooms and interior finishes.

The $1.5 million Lawrence Branch project and other capital projects identified in the Library’s Strategic Plan were funded from individual bonds approved by the Indianapolis City-Council Council totaling over $58 million assessed with no increase in the Library's debt service tax rate.
