While all 22 of the Indianapolis Public Libraries are an important part of the arts in the city, the most impressive is the newly renovated Central Library. The original Central Library building was completed in 1917, and was considered one of the most outstanding architectural library structures in the US. With an exterior of that classic Indiana limestone built on a base of Vermont marble, the building has always been celebrated as a truly special place, yet an expansion was imminent due to the quickly growing Indianapolis community. The Library Board finally opened the new six-story glass structure behind the original library in 2007. Offering gorgeous views of the Indianapolis skyline, the look of the library alone could draw people in so that we can increase the likelihood of Hoosiers to “Read, Indiana, Read!”
