Endowment for humanities programming and for additions to the library's humanities collections.

Over the past five years, the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library has experienced remarkable growth in door count and circulation due to the opening of new facilities coupled with the increased demand for library services in Indianapolis. With a service area of 832,693 residents, the Library serves Marion County. The Library has been creating greater efficiencies as well as expanding staff, collections, and operations to answer the increased demand, but limited funds have made this a challenge. Since available resources have been focused on basic library service, program expansion has been restricted. Thus, the Library seeks to establish a humanities endowment to fund ongoing humanities outreach-including lectures, exhibitions, outreach programs, collection purchases and more-creating a guaranteed future income source.
