Every Read Trip Needs to Stop at a Public Library

Donna and John visited the Central Branch of the Indianapolis Public Library. They were greeted with an old, but beautiful facade. What they saw when they entered the building blew them away. The inside was vibrant, fresh, and innovative. It was obvious this library was on the cutting edge and was doing great things with and for its patrons. They were especially impressed with the variety of programming available – “Think Tank” rooms, computer stations all over, a green screen for children to use when creating videos. The list goes on and on and on. They spent the better part of 45 minutes with their mouths hanging open, secretly wondering if there were any job openings. It was obvious that this was a loved library. Patrons were sitting in futuristic bubble chairs reading to young children, studying quietly on the upper floors, and enjoying a beverage from their cafe. The library had reached out to the community and there were signs of successful business (and school) partnerships everywhere. They left in awe and inspired and hoping to return again.
