INDIANAPOLIS — The Wayne Branch of the Indianapolis Public Library will soon be closing for its first major renovation since opening in 1983.

The Wayne Branch library, located at 198 South Girls School Road, will close for six months on Sunday, Dec. 1.

The $1.5 million project will improve the library's services, collections, and technology with additional seating, upgraded lighting, upgraded mechanical systems, and new study rooms.

Any books placed on hold from the Wayne Branch will be sent to the Eagle Branch, located at 3905 Moller Road.

The Library's renovation is being paid for through individual bonds approved by the Indianapolis City-County Council, which total over $58 million and comes at no increase in the Library's current debt service tax rate.
