Offering good books, good prices, and a GREAT cause!
Independent: We are an independent bookstore, and we are the only non-collegiate bookstore in downtown Indianapolis. We sell used and new books for adults and children, and we can special order almost any book you can name! All children's books are $1 and all new books are 25% of list price.
Non-profit: Our bookstore is a source of revenue for the nonprofit organization Indy Reads whose mission is to promote and improve the literacy of adults and families in Central Indiana. One of five adults can't read the content on this website. Customers who purchase books at the store will not only receive greatly discounted prices, they also know their money is being put toward a good cause in the community.
Indy Reads Books has a curated art gallery and a stage that hosts events each week such as author readings, musical performances, story slams, poetry nights, lectures, classes, and much more!
The bookstore is located in a historic building in downtown Indianapolis in a rapidly developing section of the Mass Ave neighborhood along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail. The dedicated staff and volunteers are passionate about books and about promoting literacy in our community.
