Beech Grove Library Renovations Complete

Beech Grove, IN. (April 4, 2019) IBG — A larger children’s area, increased patron seating, and creation of a single entrance point are among the features of the newly-renovated Beech Grove Branch of The Indianapolis Public Library, 1102 Main Street in Beech Grove, Indiana.


The $151,000 project involved adding space to the children’s area by reallocating under-utilized staff rooms and moving the Library’s interior entrance closer to the entrance to the building most used by patrons. It results in a single welcoming and monitoring point for the information and circulation desk.


Not counting public computer areas, seating within the branch is expanding from 48 to 66 seats. Power outlets for personal devices have been added to study tables. New digital signage will inform patrons about upcoming Library activities.

Shelving has been reorganized and shelving heights have been lowered to increase the openness of the 33,000-square-foot facility.
