More About Alford Branch Library

The Lionel D. Alford Regional Branch Library first opened its doors on April 5, 2003. Alford was the first Wichita Public Library location to feature both drive-up hold pickup service and interior self-check stations. Alford is also Wichita's largest branch library, boasting 18,390 square feet.

The branch was named for late Boeing executive Lionel Alford. The building's design, from the roof to its support beams, is meant to invoke thoughts of aircraft. The children's area is named in honor of Richard Rademacher, former Director of Libraries (1976-2000).
