Summer is quickly approaching here in Indianapolis, and we wanted to point out all the fun opportunities that our local libraries have in store for this summer. We know that writing about every library’s unique offerings in one post would be overwhelming and lead to information overload. Therefore, we’ve highlighted a different local library every day this week to give our Cheapsters a well-rounded preview of what’s happening this summer.
After featuring a library on each of the four sides of town, we wrap up today by heading to the center with the Indianapolis Public Library. What this week has shown us is that all of our city’s libraries have plenty in common, but that’s a good thing. No matter which side of town you live on, there are great opportunities awaiting you all summer just down the street at your nearest library. All of them are holding summer reading programs. They’re all continuing to offer plenty of resources that go beyond just letting you check out books to read (though they have plenty of those, too).
In the spirit of highlighting individual libraries, however, we’ll let you know now that the Indianapolis Public Library is going above and beyond what even the Hancock County Library is doing to kick off its summer reading program. From 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 31, you can enjoy an Earth-friendly festival at the Garfield Park Library Branch. The IPL is offering a concert by Rockasaurus Rex to kick off the summer reading program, and you can click here to see all the other fun plans for that day. We hope you have a wonderful summer and that you keep our city’s libraries in mind. We’ll leave you with links to the other library previews we’ve written this week:
