Independent We’re an independent bookstore, and we’re the only independent bookstore in downtown Indianapolis. We sell mostly used and some new books for adults and children, and we can special order almost any book you can name! 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 out of five adults struggle to read and write. The profits from Indy Reads Books go directly toward improving literacy in our community through Indy Reads. Good books, good prices, and a GREAT cause! Customers who purchase used books at the store not only get to buy their books at greatly discounted prices, they also know their money is being put toward a noble cause in the community. The bookstore is located in a historic building at 911 Massachusetts Avenue in downtown Indianapolis, in a rapidly developing section of the Mass Ave neighborhood and along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail. Our dedicated staff and volunteers are passionate about books and about promoting literacy in our community. Please visit us soon!
