The Advanced Learning Library
Work for a new Library in downtown Wichita really began a decade ago with planning and coordination with the Wichita City Council on creating a facility that would serve our community now and well into the future. This work expanded into a public/private partnership as the community reached out to provide the support needed for building a library of the future. What started as our goal to raise $5 million was increased to $8 million in September of 2016. This Capital Campaign quickly took off as generous donors in our community stepped up to expand the library’s margin of excellence to include:
Increasing the size of the Children's and Research pavilions
Ensuring that state of the art technology is available throughout the new building
Enhancing the building's public spaces to provide for additional learning and collaboration tools that support the seven styles of learning
Your donations are helping to make these dreams come true. Your contributions are what’s going to turn this amazing and safe space for children into a reality. It’s going to provide teenagers not only with a real place just for them that doesn’t exist at the old Library, but with the space and technology to grow their minds and creativity. And it’s going to ensure the valuable and rich history of our city, state and country remains protected and accessible by all in genealogy center adequate to protect and preserve these priceless collections.
