While serving the Mars Hill and Maywood neighborhoods north on Kentucky Ave. the branch also served the established rural areas further south in Decatur Township such as Camby, Valley Mills and West Newton. Circulation averaged around 80,000 to 90,000 annually while the collection size was around 5,500 books.

Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western A...
Before designing the Eiteljorg Museum, architect Jonathan Hess traveled the Southwest with museum founder Harrison Eiteljorg. The pair studied the area’s land, architecture and people. Broad, flat mesas; deep, craggy canyons and ancient pueblo structures are what make the Southwest
uniquely beautiful. These features served as an inspiration to the Eiteljorg Museum’s creators.
The Eiteljorg Museum’s main entrance has become an Indianapolis icon, with its Southwestern influenced portico and front path that stretches past the Richard and Billie Lou Wood Deer Fountain and The Greeter, a monumental sculpture by artist George Carlson. The 118,000-square-foot, honey-colored museum is set within a large, round base inspired by the circular symbols and spaces of Native Pueblo communities. Much of the Eiteljorg’s exterior consists of Minnesota dolomite, a stone with color and texture that creates the feel of a Southwestern Pueblo. Plum-colored German sandstone serves as the building’s base and appears again inside on the floor of the museum’s Grand Hall and other areas.
Inside the Eiteljorg Museum, warm earth tones, stone and rich mahogany trim continue the Southwestern motif. The expansive Grand Hall features the light-filled Michael and Juanita Eagle Commons. The R.B. Annis Western Family Experience, located on the canal level, is linked to the Hall by a winding staircase. In the center of the staircase is the famed Indianapolis Totem Pole. Most of the museum’s galleries are floored with stained oak.
With the June 2005 addition of the Mel and Joan Perelman Wing, which doubled the size of the institution’s public space, came the opportunity to add more unique architectural features to its already award-winning design. Johnathan Hess seamlessly integrated new spaces with the old.
The new north end of the museum, which connects the museum to the Indianapolis Central Canal, features the Christel DeHaan Family
Terrace. This elegant garden showcases monumental sculpture by Allan Houser, Truman Lowe and Douglas Hyde; indigenous Indiana plants and trees; and the Randy Deer & Wayne Zink Symbols of our Universe, an architectural feature that interprets the Native American relationship with the four cardinal directions. Providing a view of the DeHaan Family Terrace and the Canal is the outdoor terrace of the Eiteljorg Museum Café. A wood-and-zinc canopy near the canal entrance echoes the design of the museum’s main entryway, developing a sense of structural continuity.
Flanner House Library
IndyPL has been associated with the Flanner House social services agency for many years, in cooperation with the Library Committee of the Flanner House Board of Directors. Originally a library station was opened in Lockfield Gardens in 1967. When this building closed, a library was included in the Flanner House building at 2110 North Illinois Street. In the fall of 1979, the Flanner House organization and the Flanner House Branch Library moved to their present home, the Flanner House Community Center at 2424 Northwestern Ave., now renamed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Street. The 3,000 square-foot Flanner House Branch Library opened in the new multi-service center on October 29, 1979, the twenty-third branch in the IndyPL system, and the first to be opened in a multi-service complex.
Flourish Gallery, a project of the Martinsville Arts Council, is a community arts space dedicated to the growth of the arts in Morgan County and the surrounding area.

Fountain Square Branch
Located in the heart of the Fountain Square Business District, the Fountain Square Branch Library has had many past homes.
Opening in 1896 as "Branch #3," our branch was the third oldest in the system. In 1906 it moved to 1913 Prospect Street and became the Prospect Branch, where it remained for 35 years.
In 1941 it moved to 1125 Spruce Street, taking over the old IPS School #20. In 1969 it was relocated to 1831 Prospect Street. In 1994 the library made a bold move to the ground floor of the Historic Fountain Block Building at 1066 Virginia Avenue. This doubled the library’s size to over 5,000 square feet and placed it in the heart of the Fountain Square Business District.
Fountain Square Cultural District
Just southeast of downtown, our funky Indianapolis neighborhood has vintage and antique shops, a world of restaurants, working artists, and a vibrant arts scene, live music, and performance, and one-of-a-kind stores that sell comics, musical instruments, home décor, fresh flowers, and so much more.
