More About Walters Branch Library

The Dr. Ronald W. Walters Branch Library is located in southeast Wichita, the newest branch of the public library in that area following previous locations at Lincoln & George Washington Boulevard (1956-79) and at Colvin Elementary School (1978-2003). It replaced a library that had been located in the Linwood Park recreation center.

The branch is named for Dr. Ronald W. Walters (1938-2010), an author, speaker, and scholar of African American politics. As president of the Wichita youth chapter of the N.A.A.C.P. in July 1958, he organized the Dockum Drug Store Sit-In, one of the first lunch counter sit-ins of the civil rights movement.
