About Indy Reads Books

When Indy Reads Books opened its doors in July, 2012, it saved downtown Indy from a dreary, bookstore-less existence. The inventory is donation-based and rotates quickly, so you’ll always find something new and interesting, usually for less than $10. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, or you’re hoping for something brand new, the mostly-volunteer staff can order it for you straight from the publishers. Added bonus: all the profits from IRB support Indy Reads, to promote literacy and provide tutoring for their 1,500 adult students.
