Indianapolis Central Library

40 E St Clair St, Indianapolis, IN 46204

Capacity: Up to 450 wedding guests

The Indianapolis Central Library is a landmark location offering indoor and outdoor spaces for your wedding day in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. This venue is unlike any other in the state of Indiana. The original building was designed by architect Paul Cret in Greek Doric style, built with Indiana limestone, (just like the nearby Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Monument Circle) and completed in 1917. Because the library is a public space the venue is only available for weddings starting at 6 pm. The Atrium is a private, glass-enclosed space with fantastic views. The Simon Reading Room is an option with a classic architectural aesthetic, oak-paneled walls, and two marble staircases opened in 1917. The East Garden is a semi-private outdoor space and can be reserved during hours the library is open to the public.

Additionally, the library offers free parking in the underground garage for up to 300 wedding guests and two getting-ready rooms are available for the couple. Catering and bar services are provided exclusively by Ritz Charles.

Picking just one feels impossible!

  1. The glass-enclosed atrium will make you feel like you are dancing under the stars and during daylight hours the space floods with natural light.
  2. This is such a rare space, you can celebrate your wedding day surrounded by books.
  3. You are within walking distance of the War Memorial and Monument Circle, perfect for wedding day photos.
