Welcome to the new Glendale Branch!

Building Highlights

The 24,800 square-foot Branch is projected to welcome 225,000 – 250,000 patron visits annually.

The Branch has the second-largest collection of physical materials within The Indianapolis Public Library system, after Central Library, including various titles in Spanish, French, Korean, and a collection of Braille books.

The building is designed for LEED Gold Certification, a credential given by the United States Green Building Council. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievements.

In addition, the building has solar panels on the roof. The solar panels generate enough energy to cover 71% of the Glendale Branch’s energy costs.

We're Open!

The Broad Ripple community has enjoyed library service at various sites since 1930. The first stand-alone library opened in 1949 adjacent to School No. 80 and continued at that location until a larger branch opened in Broad Ripple Park in 1986. Facing a need for continued growth, the current Glendale Branch was constructed in 2000 and became the country’s first full-service library in a major shopping mall.
