Foundation receives gift from the Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Library provided a matching gift to assist with the Wichita Public Library Foundation's End of the Year Appeal. Their gift allowed the Foundation to leverage their challenge which resulted in $28,000 additional gifts from our supporters. These funds will be used for the Wichita Public Library's Children's Programs and other immediate needs of the Library. Thank you Matthew Warner, President of the Friends of the Library Board of Directors and its Board Members for your support of the Foundation!
