Mission Statement

The Indy Book Project provides new and used books to children in the Indianapolis area. All children need books in their home to thrive. The Indy Book Project wants all children in the Indy area to have access to books. Books change lives. Having access to books in the home is critical to ensure success in school for children.


We have given away over 30,000 children's books in the past two years. We are a small new non-profit in the Indy area. We'd love your help. Currently, our biggest need is volunteers to help us sort the books. We sort books based on grade levels, sticker them and put them into boxes. The boxes are then delivered to area agencies, food pantries and non-profits.

We also welcome other expertise. We welcome volunteers with web design experience, writing, fundraising, etc.

Do you know of a location where the Indy Book Project could safely store books and welcome volunteers? Please share ideas with Gina at indybookproject@gmail.com.

Do you know of a school, doctor's office, agency, daycare, food pantry, homeschooling family, neighborhood center, etc that needs children's books? Please have them reach out to Gina at indybookproject@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest in the Indy Book Project. Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
