Community Meetings Scheduled for New West Perry Branch Library

The public is invited to offer suggestions for a new West Perry Branch of The Indianapolis Public Library during a series of community meetings on Wednesday, March 13 and on Thursday, April 11 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Meridian Woods Park Clubhouse, 6760 Yellowstone Parkway.

Led by project architects from Schmidt Associates and HBM Architects, the meetings will solicit citizen comments on the design of the new $9.2 million dollar branch to be located near Harding Street and Southport Road, as well as services to be offered within the branch. The new branch, scheduled for opening in 2021, would encompass 25,000-square-feet and fill a large geographical gap in service for south Marion County residents.

The West Perry Branch and other planned IndyPL capital projects are funded from individual bonds approved by the Indianapolis City-County Council totaling over $58 million that are assessed with no increase in the Library’s current debt service tax rate.
