The Advanced Learning Library Exceeds Campaign Goal!

The Wichita Public Library Foundation's Capital Campaign Committee is proud to announce it's successful completion of the Advanced Learning Capital Campaign.  The committee has exceeded its goal of $8,000,000 by raising $8.800,000 in charitable contributions to support the cost of the building's construction, the expansion of the building's footprint and providing funds to purchase technology and enhance the amenities of the library.

See the Wichita Eagle's, April 20, 2018 story below for more details.
