Free Little Libraries


Feeding book worms around Midtown

Over the past few years, free little libraries have been popping up all over Midtown Indianapolis. In the spirit of community resource sharing, residents have erected charming boxes full of books that invite neighbors to ‘take a book, return a book.’

They are tapping into an established national movement that got it’s start in 2009 when “Todd Bol of Hudson, Wisconsin, built a model of a one room schoolhouse as a tribute to his mother, a former school teacher who loved reading.” Learn more at 

And don’t forget about our best local library— the free not–so–little College Avenue Branch of the Indianapolis Public Library at 4180 College Avenue.
