More About Rockwell Branch Library

The Edgemoor Park Branch opened Monday, March 29, 1976, replacing the storefront branch that had been located at Central and Oliver. Edgemoor was renamed soon after in honor of the retiring Ford A. Rockwell, Wichita's head librarian from 1947-76. Mr. Rockwell insisted that the building should instead be named for his late wife, Barbara. The Library Board compromised, naming the children's area in her honor.

When it opened, Rockwell was the largest library branch in Wichita, and the city's first free-standing branch. It is one of two locations to offer self-service printing and one of four with self-check service.
