Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library Opens

A little bit of a late post, but the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library in Indianapolis, Indiana, is now open on weekends! The library, which is the culmination of lots hard work, patience and fundraising, is crammed full of Vonnegut related items, including the author’s celebrated art. The Memorial Library aims to champion “the literary, artistic, and cultural contributions of the late writer, artist, and Indianapolis native Kurt Vonnegut” and will be open full-time in 2011. For now though, visitors can drop by on weekends.

If you’d like to support the project, you can make a donation on the library website. A variety of Vonnegut events have already been held at the center, including free lectures and a book club, where readers get together to discuss the author’s novels. You can find out more about the library by visiting VonnegutLibrary.org, or the center’s Facebook page.
