The Mission of the Friends of the Wichita Public Library is to foster and maintain a community interested in books, cultural and educational materials and activities, as well as in the development of a public library facility adequate to serve the needs of the community.  Increase and improve the facilities and services of the Wichita Public Library to enrich the cultural opportunities available to the citizens of Wichita and surrounding communities.

In our efforts to support the library, our four goals are the following:

  • Fundraising for essential Library materials, programs and services not supplied by normal budget resources

  • Underwriting of costs incurred by the Library for volunteer recognition and management

  • Promoting public support for and use of the library

  • Educating members, elected officials and the general public on Library issues

Celebrating 80 Years of Service

The Friends provide volunteer service, advocacy, and funding in support of the Wichita Public Library and its role in the community.
