INDIANAPOLIS — Beginning Wednesday, the Indianapolis Public Library will temporarily end Sunday hours and shift Tuesday hours to be open from noon until 8 p.m.

Currently, nine of the Library’s 23 locations are open on Sundays. Library leadership hopes that shifting Tuesday hours deeper in the evening will help offset the adjustment for some patrons.

“We do not make decisions that impact our ability to serve the public lightly, as we know many residents depend on The Library for access to information, materials, wi-fi, and computers,” said Jackie Nytes, IndyPL CEO. “Input from frontline staff, careful analysis of our services, and a desire to safely manage the pandemic suggest that this will yield the best combination of impact on staff versus service disruption for patrons.”

The locations affected by the changes to Sunday service include the Central Library, the InfoZone at the Children’s Museum, and the Franklin Road, Glendale, Nora, Pike, Southport, Warren, and Wayne Branches.

Beginning Wednesday, hours for all branches will be:

  • All branches: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday open from 10:00am – 6:00pm; Tuesdays open from Noon – 8:00pm; Sundays closed.
  • Central Library will observe the same hours, but close at 5:00pm on both Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Curbside pickup will continue to be offered daily (except Sundays) from Noon – 5:00pm.

The new schedule will stay in place at least until the end of the year.
