Doing Business with the Library
As a dynamic and growing leader in the Information Industry, the Indianapolis Public Library encourages your inquiries and participation in a mutually beneficial business relationship with our public library.
The Indianapolis Public Library Board of Trustees is authorized to enter into contracts and purchase under the Indiana Public Purchasing Law. The Board has designated the Chief Executive Officer of the Library or her designees as the "purchasing agent" for the Library.
In accordance with state statute, all items:

- between $25,000 and $75,000 will be purchased only after inviting at least 3 quotes,
- under $25,000 will be purchased on the open market through competitive pricing.
The Library is eligible to purchase from suppliers who have a contract with state or federal agencies which issue a competitive price for supplies or equipment, and maintains a list of all contracts made under the public purchasing law.
