More About Rockwell Branch Library

The Edgemoor Park Branch opened Monday, March 29, 1976, replacing the storefront branch that had been located at Oliver Square near Central and Oliver. Edgemoor was renamed later that year, following the retirement of Wichita's long-time Head Librarian, Ford A. Rockwell. The children's area was named in honor of Rockwell's wife, Barbara.

At the time it opened, the Rockwell Branch was the largest Wichita Public Library location other than the Central Library. It was the first branch located in a standalone facility.
