MISSION

The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation promotes patronage and secures support for the advancement of programs, services and facilities of The Indianapolis Public Library to benefit a diverse learning community.

WHY WE EXIST

While tax dollars support basic library expenses such as staff salaries and building upkeep, a need exists to develop and maintain quality programs and services for people in our community. The Library Foundation’s support delivers, in part or in whole, many of these important initiatives that patrons have grown to know and appreciate through the generations. With the help of the Library Foundation’s generous donors, these activities are available free of charge to residents of Marion County and surrounding areas.
