WICHITAN'S LOVE THEIR LIBRARY
Library customers across Wichita are grateful for the services the Library provides. Our own Kansas author Judy Hatteberg stated, "I enjoy the peace, order, quietness, the soft armchairs for reading, the books and book clubs, Senior Wednesday Programs, and the League of Women Voters Discussion, etc." Judy is a great fan of the Wichita Public Library and uses it nearly every day! We are thankful for customers just like Judy, who support the Library!
A message from our CEO & President, Kristi Oberg
This year's events are a stark reminder we should not put off important responsibilities. A year ago, none of us thought that we would be anticipating the holiday season without family gatherings or that masks and social distancing would be a norm in our society. As one of our Library patron's put it, "we need the Library now, more than ever!" The Public Library is the foundation upon which a community builds its future, and because of this, the Library is a big part of creating a positive light in Wichita. Libraries provide free access to the tools needed for social, educational, and innovative success for everyone.
