Indiana State Library – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

I saw this recent blog post, So, what does the Indiana State Library actually do?, and was reminded of my visit there.

The Indiana State Library is across the street from the Indiana State House, similar to the way that the Capitol is across the street from the Library of Congress.

One of my favorite places in the library is the Indiana Authors Room.

The library has a variety of resources in its Indiana Collection.
