Indy Reads is a nonprofit bookstore run to support literacy programs for adults and families in Central Marion County and the City of Indianapolis. This was my first visit and well worth a trip from anywhere in Central Indiana. Paperbacks are $5.99 and hardbacks are $6.99 and they have rare books for sale as well. Currently (1/12/2018) they have a complete set, five volumes, of Virginia Woolf’s Diary for $60.00. And they have a great collection of Poetry….
I ended up purchasing some modern poet’s books I had never read before and whose style I enjoyed by a quick glance.

Indy Reads has a quality children’s book section. Do note the children’s books are not organized in any fashion so you should plan on spending some time looking through the shelves of books.
They have a Facebook page, a website, and always need volunteers. Oh, not to forget, they enthusiastically support local artists and writers with ongoing programs and opportunities to display works for sale. If you ever find yourself in Indy, do stop by.
