Give Indy Reads your tired, weary books, CDs 

Actually, a correction to that headline: Indy Reads is indeed looking looking for used books, DVDs, CDs, audiobooks and video games to stock a community bookstore, but the adult literacy organization would rather they be in gently used, rather altogether weary, condition.

Surplus media is destined for Indy Reads Books, a used bookstore soon to open downtown along the Cultural Trail. The store will raise money for Indy Reads, the only organization in the city using volunteer power to provide free, basic literacy tutoring to illiterate or semi-literate adults.

Book and media collection boxes are located at:

Indy Reads Office, 2450 N. Meridian St. (open 12-5 p.m., weekdays)

WFYI, 1630 N. Meridian St. (9 a.m.-5 p.m., weekdays)

The Best Chocolate in Town, 890 Mass Ave. (11 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday through Saturday)

Global Gifts, 446 Mass Ave. (10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Saturday)

The Athenaeum-YMCA, 401 E. Michigan St. (5 a.m.-9 p.m., weekdays; 11 a.m.-5 p.m., weekends)

Additionally, book drives are planned for the Butler (Feb. 24) and IUPUI campus (March 1). Donations are tax-deductible, though benefactors will need to keep track of what they've donated, as Indy Reads will make out receipts only after the store has opened.
