The Edward A. Block Family Library exists thanks to donations from individuals, schools, organizations and businesses. Donations of items  provide entertainment and distraction for our patients and their families while at Riley.  If you would like to help the library please see our Donation Guidelines and Wish List.

Monetary donations and gift cards are used to provide new release movies and publications.  If you wish to make a Monetary Donation please write "library" in the memo section of your check.  You can also make a monetary donation online at

Delivery of Donations

Donations may be delivered to the Simon Family Tower Lobby Information Desk. The Lobby is open all hours including evenings and weekends. If you have any questions please call 317.944.1149 or email us at

Donors should not expect to deliver their donations personally to the patients due to privacy and safety of our patients. All donated material becomes the property of the Edward A. Block Family Library and are added to the collection, given away or otherwise discarded as the library chooses.

Friends of the Library

The "Friends of the Library" is a new group the library would like to start.  The focus of the group will be to support volunteer efforts for the library, raise funds for the library to purchase magazine supscriptions, collection updates, needed supplies and, ultimately to help fund library staff.

Please contact the library at, or 317.944.1149 if you are interested in joining this group.
