572a. Why Can't Indy Emulate The Willard?

I just participated in an annual week-long genealogy event at the Willard Library in Evansville. As you can see below, they had some really good learning topics for genealogists. In addition to the schedule below, the library hours for the week were from 9 am to midnight Monday through Friday and 9 to 5 on Saturday. My question is: why can't any of the libraries in Indianapolis (the State Capital and the state's largest city), put on an event like this? I mean, we're talking an entire week and every year! Is it apathy? ignorance? what? Don't they notice the stats on the number of genealogists in central Indiana? It's really frustrating. [Congrats to Lyn Martin and the Willard staff for a great event for their patrons.]
