Kimberly Andersen

Hi, I'm Kimberly Andersen, the manager of the West Indianapolis Branch Library. I have always loved libraries and all the various ways in which they help the people in the communities that they serve. Managing a library means being able to work with people and figure out how the library can best serve their needs. I also enjoy partnering with other West Indianapolis organizations to provide our community with the best resources possible. Whether you're looking for programs for your children, book recommendations, computer assistance, or just to browse our shelves, I and the rest of the West Indianapolis staff look forward to seeing you!

About West Indianapolis Branch

When West Indianapolis was annexed to the city in 1897, the Librarian, Eliza Browning, and the Superintendent of Schools organized a little library which became the fifth branch in the public library system. First located "in the valley" on a low lot endangered by White River floods, the library was soon moved to a little one-story building on higher ground in the yard of School No. 46 on Howard Street.

On January 12, 1912, a new building, built with funds from the Carnegie grant of 1909, was dedicated at 1926 West Morris Street. Service continued in the Carnegie building until November 15, 1986, when the West Indianapolis Library moved into its present 5,000 square-foot facility at 1216 South Kappes Street.

In 2004 it became the first total self-check library branch in the IndyPL system.
