INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The newest location of the Indianapolis Public Library will host its grand opening this weekend.
The new Eagle branch located on Moller Road on the city’s west side replaces a smaller location.
A grand opening ceremony is planned for Saturday. The celebration will include a special ribbon cutting which starts at 10:30 a.m., followed by tours, a live jazz band, face painting and more.
Library officials are excited to be in the new space and for the new features that will soon be available for visitors.
“It’s programming, it’s lifelong learning opportunities. We don’t just have books. We have DVDs. We have books on CD. We also have e-books and audiobooks that patrons can check out to their devices,” explained Mary Agnes Hylton, who is a librarian at the Eagle branch. “It’s free with a library card, and they can also now download and stream movies and music as well.”
The new facility is larger with 20,000 square feet of space. It replaces the previous 12,000 square foot building, which originally opened in 1970. To learn more about the Eagle Branch’s new location and upcoming events, click here.
