Westlink Remodel

Wichita Public Library will begin remodeling the Westlink Branch this year. The project will take 12-14 months to complete and will double the size of the location, adding more community spaces and new technology for residents to enjoy. A temporary location has opened one mile away to continue providing some services to residents in west Wichita.
