  • Book Discussions
    We offer a variety of in-person and online book discussions for adults, teens & kids.
  • 1000 Books Before Kindergarten
    Substantial research indicates that the more children are read to during their early years, the more prepared they will be to read when entering kindergarten. 1,000 Books By Kindergarten is a program designed to help you reach that goal!
  • 100 Books Before Graduation
    Your goal, should you choose to accept it, is to read 100 books before you graduate from high school. If you do, you will receive prizes as you participate. Prizes will be awarded after reading 10, 25, 50, 75, and 100 books!
  • #WakeUpIndy
    #WakeUpIndy is an all ages community reading challenge to elevate, amplify, and support underrepresented voices. We read and talk about books written by underrepresented authors and books that raise awareness about racial issues and social injustices.
