The Indianapolis Public Library enriches lives and builds communities through lifelong learning. Our vision is to be a Center of Knowledge, Community Life and Innovation for Indianapolis.
Commitment to Open Access
All Library services are available to residents of the Library district without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
While there might be limits on services due to residency outside the Library district or due to past abuse of Library policy, Library staff work hard to make sure all patrons find the resources they need. We comply with City ordinances and honor the provisions of the City’s Human Rights Ordinance.
Tolerance and open access are fundamental to what libraries are all about in this country, and it is our honor to serve the community.
