Great news coming out of the north side of Wichita! The Evergreen Community Center and Library, located at 2601 N. Arkansas, will open for service Monday, February 14. Currently, the book drop is open but everything else opens on the 14th. This facility in Wichita’s North End will bring together essential community services under one roof to better serve residents.

The new facility will house the Evergreen Branch Library, the Evergreen Neighborhood Resource Center, Empower, Kansas Hispanic Education & Development Foundation, Salud + Bienestar, Kansas Department for Children & Families, Wichita Police Department and Metropolitan Area Building and Construction Department.
Each agency housed at the Evergreen Community Center and Library will have slightly different operating hours.
