The Indianapolis Public Library has joined forces with Mayor Ballard and Indy Reads to launch a city initiative that is focused on giving the gift of knowledge this holiday season by providing free books to children in the community. 


The Indy Public Library kicked off the community project, Jingle Books at the Central location downtown on December 8 and it will continue at all Indy Public Library locations through December 23.


The entire community is invited to participate by visiting any Indy Public Library location, within Marion County, to donate new or gently used books to benefit Indianapolis youth. Families are also welcome to choose a book from the Jingle Books bin to take home.  The goal is to give children within our community access to reading material to bolster literacy within our city.


“Every child deserves to receive a book as a gift,” says Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard. What better way to participate in the season of giving, than by distributing the gift of literacy?


IPS encourages our community to join together for this wonderful cause and offer our children the opportunity to build and expand personal libraries at home. For more please click here
