Rescheduling Notice

The Library Foundation has decided it is in the best interest of public health to postpone Circulate until next year, given the format of the event with hands-on activities done in small groups. Circulate: Night at the Library will be on Saturday, April 17, 2021. In the meantime, please stay tuned for information on our virtual silent auction taking place later this summer!

If had purchased tickets to the event, you will contacted about either converting your ticket purchase to a donation or requesting a refund. If you have any questions, please email or call 317-275-4700 with questions. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We hope to see you in 2021!

Experience the many meanings of Circulate: Night at the Library, the premier event of The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation as you circulate through the beautiful Central Library in Downtown Indianapolis. Gather around to see live animals, sit in a circle for comedic story times, huddle up for art programs, and more! 

Now is your chance to explore historic Central Library after hours. Join fellow lifelong learners to mingle, enjoy live music, and interact in this exclusive adults-only evening at the Library. In addition to getting to experience popular Library programs, you can make the rounds to multiple food stations and sip on literary-themed libations. 

Circulate is the premiere fundraising event of The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation. Tax dollars fund the Library’s primary operations including Library staffing, collection materials, and facility and technology maintenance. However, the majority of the Library’s programs and services patrons know and love are possible because of support from the Library Foundation. The Library Foundation raises more than $2 million a year for Library programs and services, thanks to the generosity of individuals, companies, and foundations.
