Living History

In 1912, philanthropist Andrew Carnegie provided a grant to the city of Wichita to fund the construction of a new library. The Wichita Carnegie Library opened in 1915 and became the cultural hub for the growing community. Today, this landmark has been restored to maintain the character and artistry of the historic building. The library is once again a functional space as part of Wichita-based Fidelity Bank’s corporate headquarters. We invite you to see how the Wichita Carnegie Library serves as both a tribute to the cultural history of Wichita and a vibrant workplace.
