Indy Reads builds literacy, English language, and job readiness skills to empower adults and families to reach their full potential. For almost 40 years, we’ve worked toward a vision of 100% literacy for all. Current statistics show that 1 in 6 adults in Indiana read at or below a fifth-grade level. Through its Community Classrooms, Indy Reads helps adult learners increase their literacy and English language proficiency, prepare for their High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma, and build the workforce skills to improve their employability and advancement potential. In 2021, Indy Reads re-opened our bookstore and offices in the heart of Fountain Square where we are proud to serve the community through family programming like Drag Story Hour, Chess Club, book signings, and so much more. We are open Wednesday-Sunday and can’t wait to see you!

We also accept donations of gently used books on the First Friday of each month during regular business hours (11am-7pm). Our robust programming schedule updates frequently, so the best way to keep up-to-date is to check our Eventbrite page or our event calendar at
