The Indianapolis Public Library has been honored with the "Champions of Diversity Award" from the Indiana Minority Business Magazine, the sister publication of the Indianapolis Recorder newspaper. The Library was one of 16 distinguished recipients during the 9th annual Champions of Diversity Awards Dinner on January 17 in downtown Indianapolis. The Indy Library was cited for providing free programs and diversified collections and outreach services where library access is limited. IMBM President Shannon Williams described award recipients as "leaders in their industry and advocates of inclusion... and we appreciate their efforts to break racial, gender and cultural barriers."
