About Indigo Bridge Books

“We feel that books have a unique power to connect people of all life experiences to each other's stories. We believe literature has the power to transform minds and promote activism. Our staff personally curates a selection of thought-provoking, educational, and entertaining literature, and nourishes the community through locally-sourced coffee and tea goods. The proceeds from our cafe are donated to relevant causes in cooperation with our #BrewedToDoGood program.

“Indigo Bridge’s safe space policy in our physical and online spaces is intended to help Indigo be a supportive, non-threatening environment for all who participate. We encourage everyone to be proactive in creating an inclusive atmosphere.”

First Friday Artwalks

Many of our readings take place in conjunction with Lincoln's First Friday Artwalks on the first Friday evening of each month. Over two dozen local galleries and business participate on with special events, public tours, refreshments, and discounts. A monthly list of participating venues is available on the Downtown Lincoln Association's website.
