It is a nice, quiet library that passes by a lot of people's attention. So this place is always quite free and provides a nice atmosphere to study at. Plus, there's always lots of books available and plenty of empty spaces to study at.They have their entire card catalog online. You can search for books by keywords, subject, author and title, just to name a few options. As icing on the cake, you can select to put a book on hold and you will be notified when it is available. Other useful features include viewing your checkouts and seeing your hold requests.

Several times a year the Friends of the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library (IMCPL) hosts book sales at the Library Services building at 2450 North Meridian St., Indianapolis. They are called "Secondhand Prose Sales."

They normally run every other month. They then alternate between 3 day sales and sales that go on for almost a week. The latter winds down with a Friday evening "half price" sale and the final Saturday has a $5 bag sale . . . all that you can put in a bag for $5. Good but not great, the bag day used to be $2! The 3 day sales feature no special pricing.

Normal prices are about $1 per hardback and cheaper for childrens and paperback books. There is a special section with higher priced works. This section is not included in "Bag sales" but there is a 50% discount offered.

Be careful: Watch out for falling books, pushy patrons and rude (I don't know why) volunteer employees.

PROS: Nice, thrilling finds; good location
CONS: pushy customers and often rude, workers; bag sales are priced too high
