All children deserve to have books in their homes. Indy Book Project provides books to families through relationships with nonprofits, neighborhood centers, schools, and teachers. We're on a mission to ensure all children in the Indianapolis area have access to books. We collect books from the community, then sort, box, and get them right back into the hands of children who need them most.

Indy Book Project Opportunities
Funding needed to purchase board books and diverse books for children
Indy Book Project is needing funding to purchase board books and diverse books for children.
Deliver books to Community Centers
The Indy Book Project is looking for a volunteer to assist with book deliveries on a as needed basis (food pantries, pediatrician offices, community centers). Volunteer would need a large vehicle (van or SUV) to be able to transport 12-16 boxes of books. Opportunity for one time delivery or repeating deliveries. The Indy Book Project donates childrens books to many greater Indianapolis organizations and with volunteer support has donated more than 96,000 books to date.
Donate plexiglass/ exterior plywood for Little Free Library Repairs
The Indy Book Project fills Little Free Libraries throughout Boone County and the greater Indianapolis area. Since they are all outdoors many of these libraries have some wear and tear which causes damage to books placed inside. We are looking for donations to help repair them. The main need is plexiglass for doors but also small pieces of exterior plywood for repairs. For plywood either 3/4 or 5/8" thick exterior plywood in 2x2' or 2 x4' pieces
Repair damaged Little Free Libraries
The Indy Book Project is looking for a handy person to make minor repairs to Little Free Libraries in Boone County and throughout Indianapolis that have some damage preventing us from putting books inside. Can be done on your own timeframe.
