Opening of Center for Black Literature as Indianapolis Public Central Library Celebrates its 100th Anniversary

On Saturday, Oct. 7, the Indianapolis Public Central Library will celebrate its 100th anniversary, having opened in 1917. Festivities begin at 11 a.m., and all are welcome. Two weeks later — on Saturday, Oct. 21, at noon — is the grand opening of the Indianapolis Public Library Center for Black Literature and Culture (CBLC), which will feature a keynote by journalist and political commentator Roland Martin.

Libraries have traditionally been open and safe, containers of knowledge and accessible to all, though not always comprehensive in maintaining a diverse collection of materials reflective of diverse groups of people. And so here we are 100 years later, when a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation has provided for the opening of the Center for Black Literature and Culture at the Indianapolis Central Public Library.
