Hi, I’m Adam Todd, manager of the Spades Park Branch. In my free time I enjoy watching sports and reading. One of my favorite novels is Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. Please stop by and see us sometime. We’re in a wonderful Carnegie building with a great staff!

About Spades Park Branch

Spades Park Library is one of the two remaining Carnegie libraries in the IndyPL system. The building is in the Italian Style with oriental brick and a red tile roof, on land donated by Michael H. Spades. It was formally dedicated on March 22, 1912.

In 1987 the library celebrated 75 years as well as the completion of a $610,000+ restoration project. While the original arrangement of the first floor was maintained as well as all the interior woodwork, new shelving, new furniture for the staff and public, and new public and staff restrooms were included in the renovation. The 7,500 square-foot building was made handicap accessible with the addition of an elevator going to the second floor auditorium. The original circulation desk woodwork was restored and a portion of the original tin ceiling located in the lobby was cleaned and repainted. A fireplace was refurbished with teal marble tiles and gas logs. A painting donated to the branch as part of the Federal Art Project Paintings titled "Leaving the River Trail", painted by Delmas McConnell, was also restored.
