Central Library

Trolley around Town

Central Library night exteriorCentral Library is the hub of The Indianapolis Public Library and is celebrated as a treasured architectural landmark, combining the original 1917 limestone building with a new six-story addition to create a perfect synthesis of the traditional and modern library. It includes the Learning Curve for children and families, a high-tech learning environment that received the ALA Library of the Future Award, as well as the Nina Mason Pulliam Indianapolis Special Collections Room containing first edition works of Hoosier authors and other collections of historic local interest. Library staff will be available to offer guided tours to groups during the hours the trolley is in operation, or you can enjoy a self-guided tour by following the 14-page full-color booklet available at the Information Desk in the Atrium.
