Indianapolis Public Library’s Nora Branch will close in December in order to renovate



Indianapolis, Indiana – The Indianapolis Public Library’s Nora Branch is undergoing renovations, so library users will soon have to find another location to check out books.

On Sunday, December 10, the Nora Branch, which is situated at 8625 Guilford Ave., will close for a “extended restoration.” It closes on Saturday, December 9.

Following the building’s reopening, it will have:

• Updated entrance with a drive-up book return
• Updated restrooms
• Group study and tutoring rooms
• Updated community room with room for 60 guests
• Better access to outlets for device charging
• Improved mechanical and light systems

The Nora Branch opened in 1971 on North Guilford Avenue and was expanded in 1990. To help bring the library into the 2020s, the Nora Community was invited to share ideas for the renovation’s design and give input on the needs of the community via a series of community meetings and a survey.

The project budget of $2,250,000 will be funded by bonds approved by the Indianapolis City-County Council.

Indy PL did not say when the library will reopen and encouraged patrons to visit its website for updates.

Beginning Saturday, December 2, the Nora Branch hold pickup location will be the College Avenue Branch at 4180 N. College Avenue. Other northeast-side locations include Fort Ben and Lawrence.

Library patrons who have transportation concerns or are unable to visit one of the alternate locations may coordinate home delivery services by calling IndyPL’s outreach department at 317-275-4075.
