INDIANAPOLIS — A west side Indianapolis neighborhood is about to lose its library branch.

But it won't be for long.

The Indianapolis Public Library's Eagledale branch on Lowry Road, which has been around since 1970, goes out of business on April 27.

The good news, as outlined in a press release from the library system, is that Eagledale gets a new and larger branch on June 1 at 3905 Moller Road.

"It is the latest in a series of systemwide capital improvements that have included the opening of a new branch on Michigan Road and renovations at the Warren, Southport and East Washington branches. All projects are funded from bonds approved by the Indianapolis City-County Council with no increase in the Library’s debt service tax rate," according to a spokesman for the library system.

The current Eagledale branch has to close so all the material there can be moved to the new location.

During the five weeks that the area is without a branch, library users can return books or materials to any other branch.

After April 27, people with items currently being held for pick-up at the Eagle Branch may contact the branch or any other IndyPL location to have the pickup point temporarily changed.

Items can also be renwed on line at: www.indypl.org or by calling 317-269-5222.
